Application Note: Optical deformation measurement for the analysis of rolling machines 12/2009
When forming with machine tools, dynamic processes have a great effect on the quality of the finished parts. Machine stiffness, deviation of guides and drives, as well as centering and angular positions plays a decisive role in this regard. Tool service life can be increased considerably by carrying out analyses with the PONTOS non-contact stereo camera system for optical dynamic 3D deformation measurement. As a result manufacturing processes can be optimized and costs for tools and maintenance can be reduced.
Measuring Systems: PONTOS
Keywords: Analysis of solid forming processes, Optimization of manufacturing processes, Analysis of guides, Drives, Stiffness, Dynamic behavior of machine tools, Extension of tool service life
