Removing manual steps in machine tool probe calibration
Spindle probes for CNC machine tools can be highly repeatable, but their performance relies on accurate calibration.
Many users rely on manual calibration processes. Even skilled operators may introduce variability, which will affect the accuracy of subsequent measurements.
ACS-1 (Advanced Calibration Sphere) helps you to achieve maximum measurement accuracy on your machine tools by removing manual calibration steps.
The lockable mechanism on ACS-1 overcomes the need for manual use of precision gauge blocks or slips, ensuring consistency and reliability.
