Abstract

As machine tools continue to become increasingly repeatable and accurate, high-precision manufacturers may be tempted to consider how they might utilise machine tools as measurement systems. In this paper, we have explored this paradigm by attempting to repurpose state-of-the-art coordinate measuring machine Uncertainty Evaluating Software (UES) for a machine tool application. We performed live measurements on all the systems in question. Our findings have highlighted some gaps with UES when applied to machine tools, and we have attempted to identify the sources of variation which have led to discrepancies. Implications of this research include requirements to evolve the algorithms within the UES if it is to be adapted for on-machine measurement, improve the robustness of the input parameters, and most importantly, clarify expectations.
