Fixing Linear Positioning Errors
Author: Dr. Scott Smith, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Published: March 2015

In a typical machine-tool-axis positioning system, the workpiece is mounted on a table that slides along flat, straight guide ways. The table may be supported on the guide ways by rolling elements or by a thin film of oil or grease. A screw controls the table position along the guide way. The rotation of the screw in the nonrotating nut that is fixed to the table drives the table left or right. The rotation of the motor translates into linear table position through the pitch of the screw.

Cryogenic Machining Systems Can Extend Tool Life And Reduce Cycle Times
Author: Alan Richter, Editor
Published: February 2015

Efficient removal of heat from the tool/workpiece interface is the main route to high-productivity machining. Several conventional methods are available to accomplish thatódry machining, minimum-quantity lubrication, flood coolant and high-pressure coolantóbut cryogenic machining can be added to the list.

Measuring With Capacitance Sensors
Author: Dr. Scott Smith
Published: January 2015

Capacitance sensors are noncontact sensors used in machine tools to measure the distance between a noncontact probe and a target sensor. Because the probe does not physically touch the target, capacitance sensors are beneficial in instances where the target surface is moving, such as a rotating spindle, or delicate, such as a silicon wafer.
