The scanner features 11 blue laser crosses that together take up to 1,300,000 measurements per sec., cutting down time between data acquisition and producing workable files. It also has a volumetric accuracy of 0.020 mm +
Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.
Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to a higher level.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
