Shibaura Machine Inspection Testing Checklist for Machine Tools

  • Machine Tools

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, June 22, 2021 - 

Whether your goal is to produce small or large parts, you will want to make sure you are purchasing a machine tool from a builder that has a strong quality initiative and can meet your customers requirements whether the builder is offering you a lower total cost of ownership or high return on investment. Having a manufacturer like Shibaura Machine who takes care in verifying the quality of the machine tool during the assembly of the machine is an important consideration to ensure all of these expectations are met.

Shibaura Machine has set forth specific inspection criteria that each machine tool must pass before the machine tool is shipped from the factory and turned over to its new owner. This time tested criteria has been used on thousands of machine tools worldwide giving our customers the peace of mind that they are getting the machine tool quality they expect.

Inspection Tests for Machine Tools

Shibaura Machine’s inspection criteria ensures your new machine tool is operating at top performance and reliability.

Specification Test

During this test sequence all machine mechanical and electrical specifications, CNC control and optional equipment specifications are verified and documented against the machine build specification. 

Functionality Test

The series of functional testing includes checking the operation of the machine spindle and axes under cutting and non cutting conditions.  All CNC control features are verified during the functionality tests.

Accuracy Test

Being able to complete the most exacting requirements to produce high quality products requires high machine accuracy. Here are the following accuracy tests that we do before shipment.

  • Static accuracy test: Verifying the relationships of all the axes in a series of machine alignment checks.
  • Positioning and repeatability accuracy inspection: Verifying positional and repeatability accuracy relationships between linear and rotary axes
  • Machining accuracy tests: 5 unique machine cutting tests are done to verify machining accuracy
