Motion Tracking in Coordinate Measurement Machines
interferometer for motion tracking in coordinate measurement machines
Coordinate measurement machines have the highest requirements towards precision, accuracy and repeatability. It is essential to measure the geometry of objects correctly for a proper quality control. This determines manufacturing accuracy, offer knowledge on the tribological phenomena in order to solve or reduce material failures or malfunctions. CMMs normally require an accuracy in a sub-micrometer range, while the calibration and the machine-integrated control need an even higher level of accuracy.
The IDS3010 interferometer sensor provides certified accuracy below 1 ppm for continuous measurements from 0 up to 5 meters – suiting the challenging requirements of CMMs. Overshoots in the nanometer range and angular deviations can be detected, visualised and used for sophisticated error compensations (AxisCalibration Software).
Furthermore, the compact design of the IDS3010 and the versatile sensor heads fits an extensive number of different machine-integrated applications.
