Head Calibration Procedure

Post by jpo_031 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 9:17 am

Hi there. I wonder if you can walk me thru to perform the Head Cal.
I'm trying to do a head calibration, the purpose is to verify the accuracy of the cmm due to a head crash during the past days, but when i go to UCC server I can see the option to calibrate the tips but i can't find anything for head cal.

I Forgot to mention I'm using a PH-20 head TP-20 module ,with the 3.6 cmm mgr version.
Also have this other question besides trying to calibrate the head which I'm still trying to figure out, is it better to measure thin parts like sheet metal or small machined parts disabling the PH-20 and using only straight movements or whats your suggestion.

--->UCCassist-2, play the sequences via that, or use the "tool" toolbar to "create shortcut" of the sequences

Thanks for the heads up.
I see is in the software, so I have to update to 3.7 since the one I'm using is 3.6..

Hello Albert,

From UCC Server you can calibrate your head with the command: "RWReQualify(Head())"

Upon head calibration all probe assemblies will need to be re-calibrated.
