Machine Tool Calibration For Additive Manufacturing

Meet the machining challenges of Additive Manufacturing with precision machining…

Additive manufacturing (AM) speeds up the process of machining complex parts, produces very little waste and is much more efficient than traditional manufacturing methods. Despite these benefits part distortion can often occur, and finish machining is often required to ensure surfaces are flat and smooth as desired. MSP’s products can solve these issues and create high accuracy and consistent AM parts by identifying any machine errors and automating part setup.

Industry case studies

MSP solve challenges within additive manufacturing

Precise alignment is needed to cut AM parts accurately, something which is hard to achieve when it is unknown how the part has changed in the build process. In addition to this, fixturing difficulty, very little stock material and inconsistent condition of supply can also cause major frustrations.

MSP's NC-Checker and NC-PartLocator eliminate machine geometry and part setup errors, ensuring finished parts are within tolerance and have good surface finish.

MSP cut part setup time from 5 hours to 10 minutes for 3T-am

3T-am approached MSP and Renishaw with an aim to produce right-first-time parts, improve quality and reduce setup times.

By automating 3T-am's processes, the two companies helped them reduce part setup time from 5 hours to 10 minutes, increase their potential machine capacity by 157% and gave them the confidence to complete the setup and alignment for a full batch of parts during the day and leave the machine to run overnight, enabling 24/7 lights-out production.

Our products.

Machine Capability

Automatically benchmark the performance and accuracy of your machine tool, so if it's outside operating tolerances, you can stop part processes before any metal is cut.

About NC-checker

Automated Part Setup

We find all the errors in your process before machining even starts. Using NC-PartLocator, we align your part automatically in the machine volume and ensure you produce perfect parts, every time.
