Gain confidence in CNC machining with our CNC academy - all the knowledge and tools you will need to take that next step in expanding your business with SmartBench.
Previously we’ve stated an accuracy of +/- 0.125mm. This was reflective of the general positional accuracy of the machine and an average of our own finished parts and projects.
We recognise that it is challenging to come up with a completely definitive figure of accuracy because there are so many factors involved in any routing application - materials, feed rates, cam strategy, workholding, tool condition - the list goes on.
To fully answer this question requires an in-depth investigation in order to cover so many variables. So for now, we’re happy to state that SmartBench is accurate to +/- 0.5mm or better. This is a cautious estimate which we know improves significantly with the users experience.
