New Compact Laser System LICS-300H for 3D Volumetric Error Measurement
and Compensation


Rancho Domingue, CA - July 14, 2015 - Optodyne Inc., the leader in laser measurement, calibration and compensation systems, has announced a new high performance and compact LICS-300H for the measurement of 3D volumetric positioning errors, including the 3 displacement errors, 6 straightness errors and 3 squareness errors. The LICS-300H will be shown in the Westec 2015, Los Angeles Convention Center at Booth 2307.


The LICS-300H Laser Calibration System features a two main components system. The barometric pressure, air temperature and material thermal expansion can be automatically corrected. The straightness is measured by a quad-detector target. The output is the vertical and horizontal straightness. The squareness is determined by an optical square, which bends the laser beam exactly 90 degrees. The 2D time base is used to measure the dynamic contours, velocity, acceleration and mechanical vibrations.


It is a complete turn-key laser measurement system using Windows os and USB interface. The software capable of automatic data collection, data analysis based on ISO 230 and ASME B5 standards and generates pitch error compensation files for most controllers. The laser stability is 0.05 ppm. The measurement accuracy is 0.5 ppm and traceable to NIST. The measurement range is 400” or 10 meters.


Major Features and Benefits

  • Compact and light-weight

  • Single-aperture for easy alignment and set-up

  • Automatic data collection

  • NIST traceable laser accuracy

  • WindowsTM software and USB interface

  • Automatic environmental compensation

  • Support NMTBA, VDI, ISO and ASME B5.54 standards

  • Measures Straightness, Squareness, and Parallelism

  • Non-contact measurement of velocity, acceleration, vibration and circular contours

Major Applications

  • Volumetric positioning error measurement and Compensation of CNC

  • machine tools and CMM’s

  • Ultra precision positioning, Quality control and maintenance

  • Alignment of linear guide and machine bed

  • Tuning servo controllers
