At IBS we have been specialists in spindle measurement and optimisation for decades. We apply this not only for our customers machines but also for the ultra precision machines we build. Together with our partner in non-contact sensor technology, Lion Precision, we offer the Spindle Error Analyzer (SEA). This outstanding solution for spindle quality control gives best-in-class, clear and uncompromising results.
The system works by installing a precision target in the tool holder. Spindle motion is measured with non-contact capacitive probes mounted in a precision fixture. State-of-the-art algorithms analyse the results which are presented in easy to read charts and graphs
