Renishaw’s XCal-View laser calibration analysis software features a simplified interface that enables users to select, edit and format data in a variety of graph formats. It is compatible with Renishaw’s ML10, XL-80 and XR20-W rotary-axis laser calibration systems.

The software’s improved generic error compensation function enables assessment of machine errors and creation of linear compensation files. Its compare function overlays multiple data sets on the same screen, which is said to be particularly useful when monitoring the effect of mechanical and servo adjustments, or comparing different types of data sets, such as linear and yaw errors. A zero-point shifting function allows the data to be offset so that the effective zero position is different from the one used for data capture, which is said to be essential for carrying out error compensation of rotary axes. The software supports linear, angular (including rotary), straightness, squareness, linear parallelism and angular parallelism measurements. It automatically detects any unsupported file types and opens the previous analysis module where appropriate.
