Influence of each of the geometric errors on the total displacement error of the machine
IEEE EUROCON 2017 -17th International Conference on Smart Technologies
An algorithm for volumetric calibration is developed and verified practically by measuring of all geometric errors after numerical compensation. In this paper, analysis of the contribution of each of 9 translational and 9 rotational position dependent errors and each of 3 position independent errors in total displacement error vector is presented. Changing only one of the errors, and keeping all the others unchanged, the final total error is examined using the simulation based on forward
... d on forward calibration part of the calibration algorithm. The measurement of all 21 volumetric errors is expensive and time consuming. Instead of numerical compensation in the controller, this analysis yields opportunity to enhance accuracy of the machine, measuring and making correction of only few of the geometric errors. Results from the simulation showed that position independent errors have most significant influence on total displacement error. Decreasing of the squareness error SXY improves the mean of norms of total displacement vectors about 25%, and percentage of improvement for squareness error SZX is about 20%. If all squareness errors are reduced by factor 0.04, then total improvement is more than 51%.
