Machine tool diagnostics

Ensure right‑first‑time parts from CNC machines.

Reduce scrap, inspection costs and machine downtime.

A typical 3-axis machine tool is subject to 21° of freedom. These are deviations from the ideal and include linear positioning, pitch, yaw, straightness, roll and squareness relative to the other axes. All of these can have a detrimental effect on the machine's overall positioning accuracy and therefore the accuracy of machined parts.
