Zeiss' Metrotom 800 Anticipates Hybrid Workpieces
Westec 2019: Zeiss’ Metrotom 800 is a computed tomograph engineered with the ongoing development of new materials and the growth in the manufacturing of hybrid workpieces in mind.
Zeiss’s Metrotom 800 is a computed tomography (CT) machine engineered to accommodate new materials and the growth in the manufacturing of hybrid workpieces. The company sates that users need machines that can be flexible, including larger measuring ranges. Therefore, the Metrotom 800 is also designed to extend its performance spectrum when it comes to speeding up production and inspection processes.
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.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.
