The XM-60 multiaxis calibrator from Renishaw (West Dundee, IL) measures all six degrees of freedom (6DoF) – linear, vertical and horizontal straightness, pitch, yaw and roll – in any orientation from a single setup. Carto 4.2 software increases the calibrator’s versatility further by using dynamic data fit (DDF) functionality to quickly capture and analyze data from linear axes of any length.
Carto Capture’s DDF functionality allows users to capture straightness measurements dynamically by recalculating test data to reduce outlying datapoints. This improved method offers greater resilience to environmental interference and a better representation of straightness errors for longer axes.
Heidenhain linear compensation is a new option in Carto Compensate 4.2. The application allows laser users to apply pitch error compensation to Heidenhain machine tool controls in a quick-and-easy process.
