Title: Apparatus for correcting precision errors in slide straigntness in machine tools

Abstract

The present invention is directed to a mechanism by which small deviations in slideway straightness and roll of a precision machining apparatus may be compensated for. The mechanism of the present invention comprises a fixture support disposed between the slideway carriage and the tool or workpiece fixture and provided with a hinge-like coupling between the carriage and the fixture support so as to allow for the minute and precise displacement of the fixture support in a direction normal to the direction of the slide path soa as to readily compensate for slight deviations in the straightness and roll of the slide path.
