Proper Alignment Is The Key To a Productive Machine Tool
The value of this small investment in the life of your machine cannot be overstated. Machine tools lacking proper alignment and pitch error compensation are not fully productive. Over time, these errors become magnified in faulty machine operation and substandard parts. Who can afford that? We can help you minimize and/or eliminate these costly errors.
To that end, Peiffer’s investment in this technology is significant, as we realize that measuring, restoring, and maintaining alignment for our customers’ machines cannot be compromised. The best metrology tools and the highest levels of training are required for work this important. Our critical “tools of the trade” include:
- Hamar L-743 ULTRA-PRECISION TRIPLE SCAN™ Laser
- Renishaw XL-80 Laser Interferometer
- Renishaw QC20-W Ballbar System
Peiffer recommends a baseline reading of machine tool alignment for ALL service work, plus regular checks and adjustment as part of any ongoing preventive maintenance program. Recalibration, including a review of machine alignment, is also critical following any machine relocation or repair.
