Servicing large metal cutting machines is very costly, and the price for non-compliance can be devastating. Many of today’s manufacturers have opted to implement a disciplined approach to qualifying and certifying their equipment in order to satisfy internal as well as external traceability requirements such as ISO, QS and ASME B5.54 certification and compliance. Equally important is the monitoring of machine compliance characteristics over a specific measure of time.
Konecranes machine calibration services optimize machine performance by providing laser calibration designed to ensure accuracy and repeatability when producing parts. Our team will assist you with tracking your machine’s performance and preparing for planned maintenance instead of reacting to sudden non-compliance. In a few words, calibrating your machines with our precision laser measuring equipment will give you and your customers comfort knowing that the product you produce and the product they receive was manufactured on equipment capable of meeting close tolerance results.
Our laser inspection & calibration equipment is calibrated according to the manufacturers recommended intervals. Certificates reflecting the calibration date, as well as results, are kept on file at our plant in Cincinnati, Ohio. Our company maintains a library of all machine calibration files dedicated to each customer and the equipment that they entrust to our team’s services. Copies of these documents can be provided as requested by our customer. All Konecranes-owned equipment is traceable to N.I.S.T. and re-calibrated annually.
Calibration & Certification Process
Our highly skilled calibration specialists will precision level the entire machine tool utilizing our Mahr-Federal electronic levels. They will then optimize the machine tool’s geometrical orientation utilizing our Hamar geometry laser system in conjunction with our Renishaw laser system.
The machine's dynamic/interpolation performance is inspected utilizing our Renishaw ball bar. The ball bar tool is the optimum method for inspecting or verifying the machine tool’s function and dynamic performance during operation. After completing the ball bar inspection, the results are plotted out and presented to our customer for their maintenance archives.
The linear positioning and repeatability is compensated and verified utilizing our Renishaw “Gold Standard” state of the art interferometer laser system. A computer generated plot can be supplied in ASME B5.54, ISO or the format of our customer’s choice. Copies of the plots are provided to our customer for their maintenance archives.
