Title: Design and Testing of a One Dimensional Measuring Machine for Determining the Length of Ball Bars
Published: January 01, 2001
Abstract: A new machine for the rapid calibration of ball bars has been built.  By means of comparisons to CMM measurements, it has been shown to work as an accurate special purpose machine for the calibration of ball bar lengths.
