upper turret: outside surface cutting - lower turret: end surface cutting 6.1 introduction 6.1 introduction ● spindle (connected to bed) - revolute joint ● carriage (connected to bed) - sliding joint ● cross-slide (connected to carriage) - sliding joint ● turret (connected to cross-slide) - revolute joint ● cutting tool (connected to turret) - fixed ● workpiece (connected to spindle) - fixed 6.3 machine tool metrology ● error at toolpoint is represented by combination of errors in machine elements ● all errors measured or predicted (for all positions and temperature) ⇒ error compensation at the tool tip is possible ● various errors as functions of position and temperature construct error map by measuring errors at position and temperature 6.3 machine tool metrology ● reversal error (ex, hysteresis) can be obtained (ex, backlash) For each axis, - in one direction, table is moved and error is measured - in the other direction, same procedure 6.3 machine tool metrology ● when measurement interval is selected, measurement position is set as a (even number) multiple of lead ⇒ periodic error can be separated ● to remove the effect of temperature in periodic error determination for small interval (1-2 times of lead) separate experiment assume the same periodic error in entire range Preliminary temperature test ● temperature rise during operation (temperature change at several parts) Preliminary temperature test ● error measurement is needed in order to find out the effect of temperature on errors ● warm-up: reciprocating the slide ● temperature measurement position (near heat sources): bearing housing, slide way, motor, bed, fixture, environment 4 groups of errors ● linear displacement error ⇒ length change ● angular error ⇒ angle change ● straightness, parallelism, squareness ● spindle thermal drift error linear displacement error ● linear error along moving axis of machine element cause: geometric incorrectness ● ball screw - Lead error: distance variation per 1 rotation - misalignment (between rotating shaft and center axis): error occurs perpendicular to moving axis - Geometric inhomogeneous: machining error in ball screw - coupling error between feedback unit and ball screw ● laser interferometer measurement is desirable angular errors ● cause: geometric incorrectness in slide, misalignment during assembling machine structural elements yaw Y Z turret X tool roll pitch angular errors ● roll and pitch errors are in nonsensitive direction (depending on machine tools) ● yaw error is important (sensitive direction, making the tool move in radial direction) ● laser interferometer (or autocollimator) is normally used straightness ● translational error in two directions perpendicular to Z (moving axis) Y Z X ● non-contact capacitance sensor, and precision test arbor are used (laser interferometer is hard to mount because of allowable space and size of optical device) straightness ● test arbor is attached to spindle -Sensor attached to carriage moves with carriage, and measure the gap between sensor and arbor ● measurement contains straightness error, test arbor non-straightness, and misalignment - reversal technique is used to remove arbor profile error - misalignment can be removed by deleting best-fit line slope parallelism ● parallelism between Z motion and center axis of the spindle ● procedure - Two measurements at two positions along test arbor difference/distance parallelism ● to measure parallelism without other errors affecting measurement two sensors 0 ° and 180° (top and bottom of artifact) are used probe 1 spindle artifact probe 2 parallelism ● with small spindle rotation (in order for spindle error motion small) - Measuring distance = 12" -512 points per 1 rotation ⇒ best-fit circle is determined ri R n - R: radius of the best-fit circle - ri: sensor output at angle i - n: number of data parallelism ● To remove straightness error of the shaft, two sensors (0° and 180 °) are used best- fit circle is determined from two outputs ● parallelism error ( R21 R11 ) ( R22 R12 ) p 2z ( R21 R11 ) ( R12 R22 ) z z 2 parallelism R11: least square radius at position 1 and sensor 1 R21: least square radius at position 2 and sensor 1 R12: least square radius at position 1 and sensor 2 R22: least square radius at position 2 and sensor 2 z: distance from sensors 1 and 2 orthogonality ● To measure straightness of X motion wrt the Z direction, and orthogonality between x axis and spindle center line, one more test arbor is used. (7" diameter, lapped flat surface) ● reversal technique cannot be used because of machine ⇒ surface should be 0 Cross-slide calibratedex straightness X Z orthogonality ● In order to remove arbor misalignment and squareness error, - As cross-slide moves against test arbor surface, measurement is done at the interval - Repeat measurement with spindle rotated 180 ° Orthogonality and Z straightness of X motion can be determined orthogonality m1 ( x) z ( x) e( x) m2 ( x) z ( x) e( x) m1(x): 1st measurement m2(x): 2nd measurement (spindle at 180 °) dz: Z straightness of X motion e(x): arbor squareness and misalignment error z ( x) (m1 ( x) m2 ( x)) / 2 ● orthogonality can be calculated from 6.3.4 spindle thermal drift ● thermal drift: distance between two bodies changes due to temperature change (internal or external heat sources) ● 3 components of spindle thermal drift - axial thermal drift: spindle deformation in the Z direction - radial thermal drift: perpendicular to Z and deformation in sensitive direction - tilt thermal drift: spindle’s tilting motion in X-Z plane 6.3.4 spindle thermal drift ● capacitance sensor and precision test arbor are sued ● investigate position and orientation of spindle wrt time ● positions of temperature measurement: sensitive to temperature change 6.3.4 spindle thermal drift ● operate spindle for 8 hours at constant speed -
