Step 1 — How to Calibrate WIPS ¶
Calibration of the WIPS option must be completed before any tool or part probing can commence.
Calibrate after any disturbance to the work probe stylus or when the tool probe tip needs replacing.
Calibrate the probes every six months for correct reference to the machine axes.
Go to Step 6 if your machine has not been calibrated in the past 12 months.
Step 2 ¶
Rotate the probe by hand to check runout.
If runout exceeds 0.0005" or 0.013 mm, adjustment is required.
Step 3 ¶
First, verify that the probe system and connections to the machine are functioning correctly.
See step 3 and 4 for the correct process.
