KES Machine Tools has been in the field of CNC repair, CNC retrofits and calibration since 2000. We have years of experience as end-users and service technicians. If you are having problems producing in-tolerance parts, it is possible that the main cause of the problem is your CNC machine tool. Backlash, lack of repeatability, positioning and geometry errors may be reasons your machine is producing parts out-of-tolerance. With the Renishaw Laser Interferometer Systems we can analyze your machine and in most cases solve the problem on the first visit. In some cases we can correct the problem on the spot and have your machine back up the same day. This has led us to become uniquely specialized in every aspect of laser calibration service. All of our experts have extended training and years of experience, and best of all, every one of them brings a unique value to our clients and the company itself.
- Calibration & Compensation of Linear Accuracy for Linear axes
- Calibration & Compensation of Angular Accuracy for all axes
- Calibration & Compensation of Backlash and Backlash Acceleration
- Adjust/Document Machine Tool Pitch, Roll and Yaw Angular Errors
- Adjust/Document Machine Tool Squareness and Straightness Errors
The accuracy of your machine tools depends on regular calibrations. More stringent quality requirements mean that your production tools need to perform at top levels all the time. We're proud to help our customers maintain peak performance on all their tools. Our technicians adjust for geometry errors, lead screw errors and repeatability and can diagnose problems before they arise and cost you critical down time and scrapped parts.
KES is equipped to measure pitch error and backlash on your machine. We not only report results, but also compensate on the control as well, and validate the compensation by comparing before and after machine performance. We also protect you from the risk of extended machine down-time at significant expense by archiving essential CNC system files and data. We can assist engineering and manufacturing departments with wide array of services.
