Modern Machine Tool Diagnostics: The Importance and Benefits of Keeping Your Equipment Calibrated

October 26, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join CCAT and Renishaw for an in-person training class at the Advanced Technology Center, 409 Silver Lane, East Hartford, CT.

Machine tool diagnostics have existed since the start of the machine tool industry but the methods commonly used to diagnose machine tool errors have not evolved with the complexity of machine tool technology.  Many assumptions are made about machine tool performance but the true impact to production is rarely determined, often underestimated, and ultimately corrected only when disaster strikes.  Modern machine tool diagnostics aims to put you in control of your machine tool accuracy, part quality, and production efficiency by bringing awareness to machine tool conditions that relate to the critical alignments and performance of todays advanced machine tool systems.

Learning objectives:
• The importance of machine tool diagnostics and how they can improve your manufacturing.
• Basics of machine tool metrology and how to relate machine errors to part errors.
• What tools are available today for modern machine tool diagnostics.

Target audience: Manufacturing Engineer, Production Planner and Maintenance Engineer/Technician

Registration for this training is required.  This training will require a minimum of two attendees to run.
