Abstract

The goal of this project is to evaluate improvements in accuracy, curve-following ability, and damping resulting from an Independent Quality Labs, Inc supertune on a Haas vertical machining center. Two machining tests were performed on a standard Haas vertical machining center and a supertuned Haas vertical machining center in order to quantify the differences between the two machines. The supertuned machine showed substantial improvements in accuracy and damped vibrations from machining operations over the standard machine tool.
