For over 40 years Machine Tool Maintenance Ltd has calibrated many machine tools for customers around Europe. We specialize in laser calibration at the large end of the machine tool market.

In the past, laser calibration of machines was considered to be needed only when the tolerance  of components was in question. 

 Here at Machine Tool Maintenance we offer scheduled machine tool calibration using a Renishaw laser system.

Some customers have their machine accuracy calibrated every 6 months others every year. We recommend machine calibration at least once a year.



With constant use of your machine tool, the positioning accuracy will deteriorate.

This, in turn, will impact on the quality of your product and the ability to meet ISO standards.

 Machine tool calibration should be carried out after       any major alignment work is done. This also includes new ballscrews, axis feedback changes or adjustments.

 Any axis errors, including backlash, can be determined and compensated for in the control.

 All results are shown in easy to understand graphs.

A copy of the results, BEFORE and AFTER compensation

is provided. This shows the improvement in the accuracy of the axis.
