Reliable on-machine measurements are needed by industry for effective process control and quality assurance of manufactured parts. However, the accuracy of measurements on machine tools is affected by the unfavourable dynamically changing ambient conditions, vibration, noise, sound and light that prevail in or close to the production floor as well as the high probing forces of measurement devices. This research project has contributed to the development of appropriate standards and procedures which ensure traceable in-process dimensional measurements on machine tools.
