Rigidity of a machine is not a vague term any more. We can quantify it now.
Rigidity of a machine would have direct impact on its accuracy and reliabiliy. It is one of the main causes of repeatability problems on the machine. The quality of machining surface is the result of a rigid machine. Following Services are available to evaluate your machine as far as the Machanical Rigidity. Conducting these tests may address some design issues on your machine.
- Spindle Vibration Evaluation
- Axis Guideway Rigidity Evaluation
- Ball Bar Rigidity Evaluation
- Overall Rigidity Qualification
