22 Extrinsic Datum Method The reference datum is not formed by the points on the object, but is a separate precision bearing or other external datum E.g. § Precision spindle instruments (Form tester) § Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Form tester Typical spindle run-out: 0.05 - 0.025 µ m CMM Typical repeatability: 5 – 0.5 μ m

23 Form Tester Workpiece Turntable Ref. spindle Worktable Pick-up Form testers generate polar data Only deviation from a reference feature is measured and hence there is a size (radius) suppression. Plotting is done on a polar chart with suitable radial magnification. These instruments are used to get data from axi- symmetrical components like bearings, spindles etc. Part profile Profile on a polar chart

27 Least - Squares Circle Actual (Measured) Profile Least Squares Circle Roundness error Circle is fitted to the data points such that the sum of the squares of the deviations of the actual profile from the fitted circle is minimum. This is the most straight forward in the sense that all the data of the profile is used to establish the centre. Fast, easy for implementation and gives unique solution.

Example DIFFERENCE IN RADII 25.3 mm Magnification x 250 Least squares centre. Calculation of roundness error Difference in radii, Δ r = r max r min = 14.73 Roundness error = Δ r Magnification x1000 = 58.95 microns Radius (mm) 52.82 2 2x63.5 10.58 12 2 2x67.5 11.25 12 i i X X n Y Y n = = = = = = Center Coordinates Drawback : Does not conform to standards and generally overestimates the error. As a result, good parts may be rejected during inspection.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
