VOLUMETRIC COMPENSATION OF THREE-AXIS VERTICAL MACHINING CENTRE

Abstract

This contribution assesses the possibilities of application of volumetric compensation technology on a small three-axis vertical machining centre. These machine tools are designed for machining of small workpieces with various requirements on dimensional and shape accuracy. Small machine tools do not show large volumetric deviations across the entire working space as it is seen with medium-sized and large machining centres. To test volumetric compensation, detailed measurements on a small machining centre (demonstrator) were performed prior to activation of compensation set; other verification measurements were carried out with activated compensation set. Even if volumetric compensation is deployed, it is necessary to verify the achieved results in an appropriate manner. The accomplished study will offer pertinent conclusions on the appropriateness of the technology to be deployed for selected types of workpieces.
