Abstract: The traditional method for calibrating angular indexing repeatability of rotary axes on machine tools and measuring equipment is with a precision polygon (usually 12 sided) and an autocollimator or angular interferometer. Such a setup is typically expensive. Here, we propose a far more cost-effective approach that uses just a laser, diffractive optical element, and CCD camera. We show that significantly high accuracies can be achieved for angular index calibration.
