Product Description

Thermal effects are regarded as a major contributor to errors on machine tools, on measuring equipment and on work pieces.
Measurement of thermal effects is becoming more important as work piece tolerances decrease, as thermal effects not only use a larger part of the tolerances, but also influence repeatability and long term stability of machine tools, and equipment. As a consequence, several research groups and industries are working on simulation of thermal effects, in order to finally compensate thermally induced errors, or new help to develop concepts to reduce thermally induced errors.
