Machining Accuracy of Machine Tools

The capability of a machine tool to cope with rapidly changing operating conditions is a decisive factor for its accuracy

The feed drives are of particular importance in this context. High traversing speeds and accelerations put a heavy load on the feed drives, causing much heat to be generated. Without suitable position measuring technology, this rise in temperature can quickly lead to positioning errors of unexpected magnitudes.
