Abstract

To increase the practicality of the two measurement methods introduced in Part 1, procedures for obtaining well distributed measurements are proposed and supported by programs which aid the choice of the lengths of the ball-bar and the determination of the disposition of the magnetic sockets. In addition, the results of experiments conducted for the determination of the position errors of a CNC machining center, to verify the two proposed ball-bar measurement methods (triangulation and single socket method), are discussed.
