The award-winning XD Laser™ from Automated Precision Inc. (API) is a multi-dimensional laser measurement system that simultaneously measures linear, angular, straightness and roll errors for rapid machine tool error assessment. The XD Laser is available in 1, 3, 5, and 6 Degree of Freedom configurations. The 6 dimensional XD Laser is the only laser measurement
Romi is a Brazilian company founded in 1930 by Américo Emílio Romi, in Santa Bárbara d’Oeste – SP – Brazil. Nowadays it is a reputed international company providing machine tools (specifically Turning Centers, CNC Turning Machines, Plastic Processing Machines and more) to a world wide customer basis. The relationship of Romi and API actually goes back before API
The robotic telescope at the University of Arizona will be used to measure gamma ray bursts from across the universe. API trackers measure the support rings and cells that hold the telescope’s 12-ton, 21-foot wide mirror. For one component, the API tracker measured and verified over 500 features. The API Laser Tracker is used to
With a Swivelcheck, they can – for the first time – measure without dismantling To accurately measure modern milling heads, many hydraulic screw fittings and lines must be removed to reach the rotary axis. This easily took a day, and could risk violating the milling head’s warranty. The API Swivelcheck can be mounted directly on
API Services uses the award-winning XD Laser from Automated Precision Inc. The XD Laser is a multi-dimensional laser measurement system that simultaneously measures linear, angular, straightness and roll errors for rapid machine tool error assessment. A complete measurement of a 1 meter volume machine is accomplished in 3 to 4 hours instead of 3 days!
Konecranes Machine Tool Service recently invested approximately $300,000 in machine tool metrology equipment from Automated Precision Incorperated (API). The new API Radian laser tracker and four new 6-D laser systems enable Konecranes Machine Tool Service to capture multiple data points that are required to correct for positioning and geometry errors in just one setup. The
The Swivelcheck from Automated Precision Inc. is a one-of-a-kind instrument used to measure rotary axes and tables. This instrument calibrates swivel axes and tilt tables on machine tool centers; evaluates vertical rotary axes and table performance; and measures horizontal tables and axes when used with the XD Laser.
The primary application for the API Swivelcheck™ is in the measurement of rotary axes and tables in the machine tool industry. The Swivelcheck™ utilizes a servo driven motor in conjunction with an electronic level and a precision rotary encoder. Once set up, the system is capable of running in automated or manual modes and may
The XD Laser Measurement System has the ability to simultaneously measure Linear, Angular, Straightness and Roll errors for rapid machine tool error assessment. The XD Lasers fast, accurate measurement of machine positioning and axial capability makes complete machine assessment possible with up to 80% less downtime.
