Rotary Axis Calibrator measures angular position to ±1 arc sec.
Test & Measurement

Rotary Axis Calibrator measures angular position to ±1 arc sec.

Operating with XL-80 or ML10 laser interferometers, Model XR20-W wirelessly measures angular position of rotary axes for testing accuracy of lathes, multi-axis machine tools,Â- trunnion tables, and spindles. Off-axis rotary software allows XR20-W to be used even when it cannot be positioned directly on rotary axis under test. Software calculates true position and records axis performance and...
