The Renishaw QC20-W ballbar system consists of:
•the ballbar itself (essentially a very high accuracy, telescoping linear sensor with precision balls at each end)
•two precision magnetic mounts, one attached to the machine table and the other to the machine spindle or spindle housing.
In use the balls of the sensor are kinematically located in the magnetic cups. This arrangement enables the ballbar to measure minute variations in radius as the machine follows a programmed circular path around the mount on the machine table.
Regular ballbar testing of machine tools helps to:
•ensure accurate parts, first time, from CNC machines
•reduce machine down-time, scrap and inspection costs
•demonstrate compliance with machine performance and quality management standards
•implement fact based predictive maintenance
