Accuracy and repeatability are important to any machine application. Using Renishaw laser equipment and the linear error compensation features of your control, KRC can optimize your machine’s potential and provide you with the documentation you need for your machine certification requirements.
Ballbar Analysis, Laser Alignment and Laser Calibration services will improve the performance of your machine tool, improve your product quality and improve your bottom line. Utilizing ballbar analysis, the accuracy of our Renishaw laser measurement systems, combined with the reliability of our conventional measuring tools, we completely analyze the alignments, laser calibrate the positioning accuracy, and certify the results.
Machine tool alignment and calibration starts with being level, flat, straight and square. Machine “earth” level is an important benchmark if you want to check yourself in the future without the need of a laser system. Straightness of travel, including the components pitch, yaw and roll come before machine tool squareness. Laser calibration of positioning accuracy completes the picture with rotary axes laser calibrated as well.
We have many years of experience with machine tool laser alignment and machine tool laser calibration on an extremely large variety of metal cutting equipment. We do not have an affiliation with any manufacturer, or specialize on any certain make or model of machine. Basic principles of machine design cross all lines. Therefore, we can align and calibrate all of your machine tools and give you the complete results. If your machine tool requires mechanical repairs to meet OEM tolerance specifications, KRC can handle any necessary repairs needed to get your machine back into production making precision parts .
Typically, you already know when your machine tools are not performing up to expectations. When you come to the conclusion that help is needed, you must choose the most efficient route to get your machines back into optimum condition. What’s needed is action! And KRC provides that action.
