We deploy the »Laser Tracer« manufactured by Etalon AG to characterize machines with maximum precision. With its self-tracking function, the laser tracer follows the optical lens in order to reproduce three-dimensionally any changes in the distance from an object. Examples of its use include the complete calibration of 3-axis and 5-axis machine tools with different axis configurations and the acceptance and testing of coordinate measuring machines in accordance with ISO 10360.
We deploy the »Ball-bar« to coordinate the path behavior of two motion axes: Geometric and dynamic deviations of the machines can be measured very swiftly via the circularity test, defective machine elements and adjustment faults can be identified and compensation and control parameters can be optimized. Used in conjunction with additional instruments, the ball-bar supports a range of analyses via the circularity test in three radii (50 mm, 150 mm and 300 mm).
The thermographic camera is used to measure the surface temperature of an object and to present it on an integrated display. The thermal behavior of the machine and associated processes can be analyzed on the basis of the measurement data.
