Machine measuring system

The API 6D laser measurement system from Automated Precision Inc. (Gaithersburg, MD) simultaneously measures six possible positioning errors of a machine axis or similar horizontal slide motion, including the angular roll around the direction of travel. The option is available on the firm?s new systems or as a retrofit to 5D systems that measure linear displacement in the direction of motion, straightness of travel in the two axes perpendicular to motion, and angular pitch and yaw motion.
