Bluetooth Technology Improves Machine Tool Diagnostics

Building on Renishaw's QC20-W ballbar system, the new replacement QC20 ballbar has been designed to meet the needs of the modern machine shop.

"The quickest, easiest and most effective way to monitor machine tool performance has been improved with the QC20 ballbar," said a company spokesperson. The updated QC20 ballbar is fully compatible with existing QC20-W programs and processes, enabling users to easily maintain and maximize their ballbar measurements.

Featuring the latest Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, the QC20 ballbar forms a strong wireless connection with the PC. Further advantages of the enhanced Bluetooth technology are greater power efficiency and longer battery life when using QC20 ballbar.

Ballbar testing provides a simple, rapid check of a CNC machine tool's positioning performance to recognized international standards. This allows users to benchmark and track the performance of their machines, and to quickly diagnose problems that may require maintenance and the error sources that produce them.
