Presetter Machine Maintenance and Calibration
Benefits of Proactive Machine Maintenance and Calibration
Tool presetting helps in sustaining and supporting efficient machining processes by providing tool data to be translated to CNC programs. These presetting machines require annual calibration to ensure the highest accuracy and repeatability of measurements. When machine shops are proactive about tool presetter maintenance and calibration, the shops typically experience:
- More consistent measurements over the life of the machine
- Increased throughput
- Longer machine life
- Less machine downtime
Processing Magazine states “Instrument calibration is one of the chief methods of checking and maintaining the quality and accuracy of measurements. All these measurements are compared with the standard and accepted accuracy. If any discrepancies arise, the instrument is configured to provide results that lie within the acceptable precision, accuracy and repeatability range. This is a good manufacturing practice that focuses on eliminating or minimizing factors that are responsible for errors or inaccuracy.”
Keeping Track of Calibrations Doesn’t Have to be Difficult
Keeping track of presetter calibration can be a challenging task in which human error occurs. Even if a company is using a software system to stay up to date on presetter calibrations, it still requires someone to notify the technician when re-calibrations of the machines are due. Any lag time after that point can decrease the productivity and effectiveness of the presetting machines.
