CARTO software for volumetric compensation

Even when machine tools are new, there are positioning errors in multiple degrees of freedom that vary throughout the working volume. During the normal operational life, machine performance will continue to degrade due to mechanical wear. This often results in difficulty in achieving desired tolerances, leading to increased scrap of components. When volumetric compensation is applied, the machine tool controller automatically applies a correction to reduce these errors. This process can be performed quickly by capturing calibration data with XM-60 and using Compensate to generate a volumetric compensation table. The result is consistent performance across the entire working volume.
