Robot Ballbar Test

The robot ballbar test allows you to measure the accuracy of a robot using a telescoping ballbar measurement device. You can regularly run the ballbar test to have a record of your robot's degradation.

Robot ballbar test features

  • Have a record of the robot degradation
  • Fully Automated generation of the circular path
  • Fully Automated measurements using the Renishaw QC20-W ballbar
  • Ballbar measurement device widely available and affordable
  • Best alternative to ISO 9283 performance tests
  • Support for more than 300 robots
  • Compare robot accuracy before and after calibration

The test is done in 3 simple steps:

  1. Generate the robot program - 3:31
  2. Make the data acquisition - 4:20
  3. Generate a PDF report - 5:42

The robot ballbar test allows you to validate:

  • Accuracy of the robot (constant TCP orientation) - 5:01
  • Accuracy of the robot and the tool (moving the TCP orientation) - 6:08

RoboDK's ballbar test with the Renishaw QC20-W ballbar is the most cost-effective way to certify your robots!
