The Rotary Inspector consists of a master ball that is placed on the machine table and a wireless measurement probe inserted in the spindle. The machine is commanded to rotate the first rotary axis whilst two linear axes follow. The probe in the spindle represents the tool path and the master ball the workpiece. The probe measures the relative positioning error in X, Y and Z directions at the Tool Centre Point (TCP). This 3-axis test is repeated for the second axis followed by a full 5-axis test. Rotary axis pivot line and squareness errors are measured plus the 5-axis volumetric and dynamic errors over the full 3D volume of the machine. Automatic compensation is available as an option.
