1 April 1992 Compensation of residual form errors in precision-machined components
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes a compensation technique for the correction of repeatable rotationally- symmetric residual form errors in precision machined components. Details of the FTS2TPG software package, that connect a family of manufacturing equipment and metrology instrumentation together in a compensation cycle, are reviewed. In addition, examples are shown that demonstrate the level of compensation achievable with this technique.
