How Shibaura Machine is Solving X-Axis Straightness of Motion on the TSS Series

  • Machine Tools

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, October 3, 2023 - 

In precision machining, even the slightest misalignment can lead to significant errors in the final product. While advancements in technology have made it easier to achieve high levels of accuracy, certain challenges persist. 

Shibaura Machine’s TSS Series vertical boring and turning mills incorporate a robust beam fixed to the column top with a compensation cylinder specifically designed to compensate for x-axis straightness. Designed with advanced engineering, the TSS Series ensures that the x-axis remains aligned throughout the machining process.

The Challenge of X-Axis Straightness

The degree of x-axis straightness carries a significant impact on the end product. Ensuring x-axis straightness is crucial for meeting strict tolerances and quality control standards. Inaccurate machining can lead to material waste, increased rework, and even the risk of losing clients due to quality issues. Therefore, compensating for x-axis straightness is not just a technical requirement but a business imperative.

A Solution to X-Axis Straightness Challenges

Designed with advanced engineering, the TSS Series ensures that the x-axis remains aligned throughout the machining process.

Advanced Calibration for Optimal Straightness

The TSS Series goes beyond traditional calibration methods by incorporating algorithms that continuously monitor the x-axis for deviations. These algorithms work in combination with the series' robust beam and specialized compensation cylinder to ensure optimal straightness of motion. 

Start Elevating Precision and Efficiency

This level of precision is not just about quality; it's also about operational efficiency. The TSS Series offers a comprehensive solution to achieving x-axis straightness of motion. This significantly impacts cost savings due to reduced waste and rework, and an extended lifespan for the machine itself by ensuring proper alignment.

With its advanced technology and robust features, it stands as a testament to Shibaura Machine’s commitment to quality and innovation. Contact the Machine Tool team to learn more.
