A main field of application of the Etalon technology is the geometric analysis and compensation of 2-5 axis machines of small and medium size. Particularly where the highest accuracy requirements apply, e.g. in the automotive industry, aerospace or medical manufacturing, our technology is being used successfully.
The machining of workpieces with 4 or 5 axes places very high demands on the geometry of the machine: The slightest deviations in the linear and rotary axes are made visible on the workpiece through the complex machining programs. In case of complex tasks, such as the impeller manufacturing or the production of highly loaded transmission components with high dimensional accuracy and surface quality, only a machine with nearly perfect geometries can be deployed.
The technology used to acquire geometric deviations has to meet the following requirements:
The Etalon technology with its innovative measuring principle, its high-precision data acquisition and its sophisticated and comfortable software can meet these requirements. It enables the accurate detection of all geometry variations in a short time and offers certified interfaces to the far-reaching compensation possibilities for advanced controls like Siemens, Heidenhain, Fanuc, Fidia, Mazatronik and others.
