CNC Calibration and Certification

API's CNC calibration and certification process using a Ballbar on a machine
API’s CNC calibration and certification process

Why calibrate your CNC machine? Because you want to make accurate parts. We understand you often need to measure and error map a machine for reference and utilization purposes and you are held to strict quality measures and standards. API Services can provide the CNC calibration and certification solution you need.

Whether you need a simple Ballbar test, or a 5 axis CNC calibration package, API will measure, correct, and certify the condition of your equipment using industry leading equipment. Consistently having your CNC machines calibrated and certified will help you have an advantage over your competition. We can provide regular performance evaluations that you can deliver to your customers proving that your machines can deliver as promised.

If you implement our CNC calibration and certification into your preventative maintenance plans we can help you with early detection of mechanical issues, wear and diminishing accuracy over time. A recent Hewlett Packard company study revealed that 88% of 57 purchased production machines were out of specifications upon installation.
