The Laser-Tracer : a technology intended to improve machine tool and 3-dimensional measuring machine control


With respect to your machine tools or 3D machines, you want:

  • To monitor deviations by periodic checks
  • To characterise errors as per standards ISO 230 or ISO 10360
  • To compensate for machine defects
  • To minimise machine downtime due to inspections

The patented Laser-Tracer technology has been developed in order to better control machine tools and 3-dimensional measuring machines. This technology provides:

  • A cartography of your machine, from the simplest (biased axes) to the most complex machines (21 errors + rotary axes).
  • An uncertainty of measurement at micrometric scale.
  • The issuance of a compensation matrix structured in accordance with the brand of the digital control.
  • A measurement time significantly shorter than that of conventional measuring instruments.
  • Operational flexibility, irrespective of the machine size (0.5 to 15 metres).
  • The measuring strategy allows a comprehensive survey of your machine’s working volume.
  • Errors on linear and rotary axes are detected with a single instrument.
  • Reduced machine downtime compared to conventional measuring instruments.
  • Possibility to correct the errors detected through the automatic issuance of a compensation matrix.
