Digital Laser Scanning Head Achieves High Accuracy
Faro introduces the Digi-Cube, a digital laser scanning head designed to achieve a high performance-to-price ratio for users. Digi-Cube is a high-precision, high-scan-rate, digital servo-controlled scanning head that can be integrated into a variety of laser scanning products to optimize productivity and output quality. It is specifically designed to enable good outcomes for exacting applications such as high-accuracy laser marking, scribing and engraving, laser 3D printing, photovoltaic production, and welding.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
