Abstract

Geometrical error (GE) is a key criterion for machine tools performance evaluation. GE measurement methods can be classified as direct and indirect methods. As an indirect GE measurement method, the scale and master ball artefact (SAMBA) method can estimate the GE of linear and rotary axes by probing series of master balls and a scale bar artefact installed on the machine tool pallet. The purpose of this study is to research the performance of direct and indirect GE measurement methods (i.e. laser interferometer and SAMBA method) in linear positioning error measurement such as EXX and EYY. These errors of the X- and Y-axis are separately measured on a five-axis machine tool with the two methods. The results reveal that the SAMBA method yields similar results as the laser test in error shape and range. However, there are some minor differences which are discussed.
