Summary

Machine tools that drill, cut, or mill accurately not only produce more accurate parts, but are more cost-effective to run. An accurate machine means less wear and tear on its components, needs less unplanned maintenance, and may even reduce the need for post-process metrology.

However accurate your machine tool is now, or was when first delivered, positioning errors will creep in over time. Parts wear, crashes take their toll, even temperature cycling can affect accuracy at the machining tolerances required today. This can be fixed with proper measurement and adjustment.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The importance of Geometry Checks for Machine tools
  • What parameters need to be checked
  • How the MEAX system makes it easier to do these checks
  • The machine tools that the new MEAX MT30 can check
