Spindle Check is designed to determine critical performance parameters including: radial and axial error motions, thermal drift and distortion due to environmental vibrations. Tracking and control of such performance can be critical to ensure product specifications can be met and yield maintained in high end manufacturing applications, such as medical and aerospace parts.
The Spindle Check system employs state-of-the-art sensor technology for high accuracy measurement. Powerful yet simple software provides clear performance data. Data is provided as actual spindle displacement and can be directly linked to tolerances observed in parts. Simple installation and lightweight portable design ensure it is quick and easy to use across the shop floor.
Measurement is carried out using a high precision target stored in the tool magazine, with a maximum roundness error of 1 μm. Spindle accuracy is measured according to machine type, in line with international standards (ANSI, ISO and JIS). Multiple Spindle Checks can be networked remotely for total factory control.
