Know Your Machine Tool

by Tim Sheridan

Know Your Machine Tool was released in 1991.

This book became an instant classic with machine tool metrologists. It was the first book dedicated to the parameters set forth in ANSI and ISO standards and to demonstrate specific measurement techniques and examples to measure to the standards.

The measurement techniques explored in the book eventually gave birth to the modern Spindle Error Analyzer with its high-resolution Elite Series capacitive sensors, and analytical software.

Using the Spindle Error Analyzer, a new book, Precision Spindle Metrology by Eric Marsh, has been released and now defines the state of the art of machine tool spindle metrology.

Know Your Machine Tool contains the fundamental concepts and techniques for spindle measurement and will provide a foundation for your machine tool metrology exploits.
