Marposs Announces Axicheck Software for Control and Optimization of Rotary Axes Performance

Increase production capacity by quickly and accurately inspecting a machine’s state of health

Published: Monday, April 20, 2020 - 12:00

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs introduces AxiCheck—a software package with a graphic interface that analyzes data collected with Marposs probes, processing it in a graphic format to easily determine the operating state of the machine.

AxiCheck helps increase production capacity by quickly and accurately inspecting the state of health of the machine, allowing users to identify and correct errors that may impact the workpiece, as well as planning maintenance operations in advance. This reduces the number of reject parts, particularly when dealing with single batches of expensive part production.

Parallelism of the axis of rotation and accuracy of its center are fundamental characteristics for the proper functioning of a machine tool with rotary axes. AxiCheck takes measurement to determine the reference values on a calibration sphere mounted on the machine table to determine the machine’s operating health. Designed for use on 3- and 5-axes machines, AxiCheck is capable of monitoring and optimizing the performance of the rotating axes (5 Ax) while detecting any deterioration in the machine’s linear axes (3 Ax) in real time. It also features warning and alarm messages to alert the user if the measurement is out of tolerance.

Advantages of AxiCheck can be summarized as follows:
Graphical machine error detection
 Increase in production capacity
 Reduction of scrap and rework
 Visualization of error evolution with alarm threshold for maintenance planning
 Detection of parallelism errors of the rotary axes and centers of rotation of the machine
