How Shibaura Machine Builds Quality into Every Machine Tool
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, October 25, 2021 -
Building a machine tool from a geometry standpoint can be equated to building a house. Just like a house needs walls to be square, floors to be flat, and structural components need to be aligned the same principles apply to a machine tool when you substitute in ball screws, machine ways and major machine structures.
Ensuring everything is built to a specification and a certain level of quality also means inspection in both cases. While house builders use inspection tools to ensure their homes are built to a specification and a certain level of quality, Shibaura Machine uses inspection tools such as precision levels, straight edges, autocollimator and laser interferometer to verify alignment and geometry throughout the entire machine build assembly process at our factories and on your factory floor to ensure a quality machine tool for many years to come.
