5 Reasons to calibrate your Machine Tool

What is Machine Tool Calibration? 

Machine Tool Calibration is the process of measuring, diagnosing and correcting the manufacturing error within your Machine Tool or CNC machine. Most large machine tools come directly from the manufacturer with a set of tolerances. (Your machine will be within this specification). Over time, the error of your machine will increase as  it manufactures parts (drilling, milling, lathe). The volumetric or centering accuracy of your machine could be the reason your parts are not within tolerance.

Why should I schedule regular Calibrations? 

  1. Improved yield
  2. Less re-work of parts
  3. Increase machine up-time
  4. Standardization
  5. Less wear and tear on your machine

Your measurement equipment should  guarantee meeting your specific needs and satisfying all internal and external requirements. What you care about is running smoothly, on schedule and with high confidence. Routine calibrations can directly affect the yield of your business.
