Calibration of articulating arm coordinate measuring machines per ASME B89.4.22-2004
Trescal, Laboratory Manager, 7350 N Teutonia Av, Milwaukee, WI, USA
Solving issues in testing articulated arm coordinate measuring machines by bringing homogeneity to the process was the intention of the standard but it also had the consequence of being difficult to comply with in 100% totality. Accessibility to appropriate testing standards, whether financially or in their inherent stability can prove very difficult for a commercial calibration laboratory. Through hours of design & build and with deep testing resources, Trescal has created a platform from which AACMM with effective diameters up to 10.5 ft can be tested for touch measurement, and ISO17025 accredited, with full compliance to the B89 standard.
