VOLUMETRIC COMPENSATION


API’s volumetric calibration of large machine tools uses a precision 6DoF Laser Tracker with interferometry, featuring the same capabilities of a traditional laser interferometer. The laser tracker offers the enhanced ability to track the machine’s tool-tip location throughout the entire machine volume measuring all 21 error parameters for 200–400 locations during extensive axial movements. Each generated point is an accurate reflection of the machine’s kinematic errors; a software algorithm extracts error sources and builds an accurate volumetric map providing compensatory values as an adjustment to offset for the inherent machine geometry errors.
