Machine Tool and Robot Calibration

Prevent drifts and ensure consistent, reliable production.
FARO’s laser trackers and measuring arms provide a convenient way to collect measurement data and recalibrate large manufacturing robots on-site, saving time and costs.

Solutions for Precise Machine Tool Calibration 

Machines and robots are integral to today’s manufacturing processes, often performing repetitive and even dangerous tasks. When a machine or robot performs a set function repeatedly, calibration and alignment issues can arise, leading to part errors, increased downtown and wasted parts that fail to meet quality standards. Using laser trackers and associated software during calibration helps maintain optimal performance.

Choosing the Right Tool for Calibration

All types of precision machinery — including gantry milling machines, lathes and laser cutting machines — require calibration. For large machines and robots, Vantage Laser Trackers are the tool of choice. For smaller machines, a FaroArm® or ScanArm performs best. These portable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) allow machinery to be calibrated right on the shop floor, saving downtime. In the end, accurately calibrated machines consistently produce accurate parts.
