Volumetric Inspection and Calibration of a CNC Machine

By |February 24th, 2014|

A laser tracker can be an ideal tool to check and calibrate a CNC machine. Typically, CNC machine tool calibration has been done by using a laser interferometer upon machine installation. This is usually a linear calibration that is performed separately on each axis. Typically, it is a repeatability calibration. In other words, if I send the machine to the same location over and over again, how accurately can it go to the same location in a single axis? A laser tracker can be used to volumetrically check not just the repeatability, but also whether or not the machine is traveling to the locations selected. With some newer CNC controllers, the error data can then be fed into the controller and self correct the machine motion.

Rebuilding Hopi Sites in 3D

By |January 3rd, 2013|

Laser Scanners Help Preserve Part of the Hopi Past.
A team from Cyark, a non-profit organization dedicated to documenting historical sites around the world, is working to preserve the memory of an important art of the Hopi Native American Culture.

Tutuveni, located between Mesa and Flagstaff in Central Arizona, boasts more than 5,000 Hopi clan symbols that were inscribed during the ceremonial pilgrimage to Ongtupqa, or the Grand Canyon, which is for many Hopi the point of their people’s emergence into the world. Unfortunately, vandalism over the past 20 years has severely damaged the petroglyphs carved into rock faces throughout the site.
