ETALON TRAC-CAL | TRAC-CHECK patented software helps greatly reduce the time spent on ensuring machine tools meet key international standards for precision. 

The ETALON system uses multilateration, a spatial measurement technique deployed by satellite navigation systems, to increase measurement speeds and ensure the highest levels of accuracy when calibrating, compensating and verifying machine tools. The speed and precision of multilateration means manufacturers can reduce measurement times by up to 80% compared to conventional laser interferometers, thereby securing results in one to two hours instead of one to two days. 

ETALON TRAC-CAL | TRAC-CHECK uses a single self-tracking laser interferometer either from ETALON or the Leica Absolute Tracker AT930/960. This makes measurements more accurate and traceable, while reducing the maintenance and recalibration costs.

With the ETALON system, users may roughly position the components, without the need for time-consuming fine alignment. TRAC-CAL supports measurement of machines of between 0.3 m and 30 m in size or larger, depending on the hardware used. In addition, no special machine interface is required to determine the volumetric deviation and a correction table can be output within seconds. The system is also designed to calibrate coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), using the ETALON LASERTRACER.

TRAC-CAL determines:

The deviations of linear axes of a machine ("6 DOF"), as well as the angle deviations of the axes to each other
  • Positioning error
  • Straightness error in both directions
  • Pitch, yaw, roll error (all axes)
  • Squareness error
  • Deviations resulting from special machine designs, such as an elastic column bend
The spatial deviations of rotary axes can also be comprehensively determined with the same software and without additional hardware.
