A Novel Method for the Measurement of Geometric Errors in the Linear Motion of CNC Machine Tools
AbstractIn order to improve the accuracy of the linear motion of computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools, a novel method based on a new type of 1-D (1-dimensional) artifact is proposed to measure the geometric errors. Based on the properties of the displacement measurement of a revolutionary paraboloid and the angle measurement of plane mirrors, the 1-D artifact can be applied to identify position errors and angle errors. Meanwhile, the concrete 6 degrees-of-freedom error identification method is described in this paper in sufficient detail. Through measuring the 1-D artifact horizontally and vertically using the machine tool, the geometric errors can be obtained by calculating the deviation between the characteristic parameter of the 1-D artifact measured by the machine tool and that measured by a more precise method, for example, laser interferometry. Experiments were carried out on a coordinate measuring machine, and the validity and accuracy of the method were discussed by comparing the result with the identification error measured by a laser interferometer.
