The award-winning XD™ Laser from Automated Precision Inc. (API) is a multi-dimensional laser measurement system that simultaneously measures linear, angular, straightness and roll errors for rapid machine tool error assessment. The XD™ Laser’s fast, accurate measurement of machine positioning and axial capability makes complete machine assessment possible with up to 80% less downtime for your CNC Calibration. For example, a complete measurement of a 1 meter volume machine is accomplished in 3 to 4 hours instead of 3 days.
The telescoping Ballbar from Automated Precision Inc. (API) quickly and easily checks contouring accuracy by testing how machine axes move in a circular path. API’s Ballbar measures the deviation made by the machine tool and displays the data in a polar plot format. This one affordable piece of equipment can save a machine shop thousands in machine tool servo maintenance and downtime. Current models of the Ballbar are now wireless to improve ease of use.
