One of the errors includes the probing system calibration (stylus calibration) and it has a critical role in the CMM measurements, not only in terms of the functionality, but also in terms of the contribution towards the overall measurement error.
For force calibrations that have been performed at NIST, the lower end of the uncertainty range associated with load cell characteristics is represented by a value of [u.sub.r] of 0.0003% of the response at maximum force, when [u.sub.r] is calculated from Eq.
In many cases, calibrations are also completed to comply with regulatory requirements or as a means of neutral verification and legal documentation.
The objective of this study was to refine the traditional freehand cross wire phantom calibration method by modifying the mathematical formulation of the calibration problem to eliminate the need of imaging the intersecting point at different viewing angles and developing an actuator-assisted approach to facilitate quick and consistent collection of intersecting points spanning the entire image FOV.
