Geometric Error Detection and Identification of a Heavy NC Boring and Milling Machine Tool by Using Laser Tracker
It is inefficient and complicate to detect geometric errors of a heavy machine tool with large scale dimensions by using traditional laser interferometer. With the development of the laser tracker convenient for measuring large scale dimension, the accuracy of the laser tracker can meet the accuracy requirements for geometric error measurement of heavy machine tools. In this paper a method of using laser tracker for detecting and identifying the error of a heavy NC boring and milling machine tool is introduced. The measuring experiment demonstrates that this new method can improve the measurement efficiency.
