Calibrating a CNC Machine for Machine Tool Performance

What is the Wireless Ballbar?

The Wireless Ballbar is an essential diagnostic tool that complements the XD6 perfectly. It measures the performance of lathes or CNC machines along any sweep angle within a 360-degree path. This capability is crucial for identifying and diagnosing both servo and mechanical errors efficiently. The Ballbar’s user-friendly setup and software allow for intuitive analysis of:

  • Backlash
  • Squareness
  • Stick-Slip
  • Servo Lag
  • Scale Mismatch
  • Machine & Servo Vibration

All these diagnostics are achievable in a single setup with up to 8 hours of battery life, making it an invaluable asset for maintaining optimal machine performance.
