Ballbar testing allows users to keep track of their CNC machine tools' positioning and perfomance to troubleshoot problems while minimizing machine down-time as well as implementing preventative maintencance.
Benefits of regular ballbar testing
The XL-80 Laser's most common use is for verification of motion systems. Machine performance measurements help identify issues and allow users to be confident in their machining.
The XL-80 independently & Directly measures geometric errors in a machine, unlike laser track systems. Machine accuracy can be improved by using the data to make targeted alterations to the machine's assembly as well as applying error compensation.
Repeat runs can verify and demonstrate improvements made in the machine's capabilities.
