When you need in-depth analysis and diagnostics of your machine tool linear axes, the Position Analyzer provides the measurement capability you need. The system provides a simple but powerful principle to measure the machine’s 3D positioning and straightness errors according to ISO 230 plus much more.
The Position Analyzer was designed as a sister product to the Position Inspector, for applications where machine size or layout requires a specially defined measurement artifact. Geometric deviations are determined by measuring a calibrated ball beam or artifact made to order. The measurements are performed by our patented and self-centering Trinity (wireless) or Triton (wired) probe that measures X, Y and Z coordinates simultaneously.
The probe has a large range, enabling a simple setup without alignment procedures. A ball beam measurement takes only minutes and returns all aspects of the positioning accuracy, repeatability and straightness deviations directly of numerically controlled axes.
The systems offers:
Linear axes measurement with 0,2μm resolution.
Measurement time under 5 mins.
Linearity, straightness and squareness measured according to ISO230-1, -2.
Measurement of unique machines. Controller compensation tables matched to machine.
Rapid and automatic verification of the total 5-axis performance of your machine.
