Calibration

In the machining process, calibration tools are used to monitor, assess, and improve both the dynamic and static performance of position-critical motion systems. To properly calibrate a device, it is measured under test and compared to a measurement value universally agreed upon as a national standard. While historic calibration techniques only measured displacement of a machine tool along its three axes, modern calibration equipment can detect errors in roll, pitch, and yaw, along with squareness errors, and vertical and horizontal straightness errors. Some modern calibration tools include laser and ballbar systems, multi-axis calibrators, rotary axis calibrators, and machine checking gauges.
