Unified Approach Improves the Accuracy of Five-Axis Machine Tools

Ph.D. students Jennifer Creamer and Le Ma work in Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Precision Motion Control Laboratory. (Credit: Missouri S&T) Five-axis machine tools are computer-numerically controlled (CNC) machines that can move, cut, or mill a part on five different axes at the same time. Because of inherent geometric errors, manufacturers must make adjustments when calibrating these machines. Several different approaches exist to help compensate for the errors, but none of them provides a complete picture. Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology set out to find a way to eliminate that piecemeal approach and develop a new way to capture complicated geometric errors and automatically generate compensation tables.

Why Your Leak Test Doesn’t Measure Up – and What Data Can Do About It

On the manufacturing line, the struggle to test for and address leaks that lead to faulty parts and warranty claims is nothing new — but rising expectations for product quality and reliability are putting leak tests to the test. How can quality engineers meet Industry 4.0 requirements for emission control, performance and reliability while coping with increased production volumes that demand shortened cycle times? Make the test better with data.
