Acronyme: MATECS

Definition: STANDARDISATION OF MACHINE TOOL ERROR FUNCTIONS REPRESENTATION AND COMPENSATION

Description: The MATECS – MTP initiative focuses on three main objectives:

  1. Standardisation of machine tool geometric error functions and parameters identification and terminology;
  2. Standardisation of error functions representation output from different measuring systems and sensors system;
  3. Definition of standard compensation tables to be interpreted by different Computer Numerical Controls (CNCs) to allow uniform implementation of machine tool geometric error functions and parameters compensation strategies.
