Event Description

Don’t Sit On Your Laurels: Learn How Rapid Machine Tool Verification Helps!

You might already have your machine tools calibrated with a laser annually, and perform ball-bar checks once a week. If you do that, then you can have more confidence in your machining processes than 95 percent manufacturers. However, if you’re performing machining operations on high value components, then that still might not be good enough! Before you cut metal, you want to be sure the machine is still performing within specification. This is where rapid machine tool verification comes in.

Join metal and machine expert Dr. Jody E. Muelaner in this highly informative webinar where he will review the methods used for machine tool calibration and verification, and identify those methods that are most suited to rapid verification checks. Muelaner will tell you how fully automated checks—to ensure that the machine's accuracy has not gone out of specified limits—can be performed in as little as two minutes. He will also analyse the suitability of existing methods for rapid verification, and present a strategy for performing frequent verification tests during production.

Muelaner will first walk you through the error sources which influence machine tool accuracy, such as: the static positioning, or kinematic errors, of the machine tool itself as well as the dynamic effects in the machine tool, spindle errors, and tool errors. He will then explain the methods for calibration and verification in three categories: (i) physical error separation methods that use measurement setups designed to isolate one error source at a time, (ii) simultaneous error parameter estimation methods in which many measurements are taken and then used to solve a set of simultaneous equations to find the error parameters, and (iii) methods which determine the combined error effects.

After attending this webinar, you will understand the key concepts related to machine tool accuracy, and the methods for calibration and verification. You will learn the best checks to perform, and how to set them up. Plus, you will understand the sources of error that affect machine tool accuracy, which in turn will enhance your ability to select a rapid verification strategy suited to a particular machining process.
