Accurate measurement of volumetric errors plays an important role for error compensation for multi-axis machines. The error measurements for volumetric errors of five-axis machines are usually very complex and costly than that for three-axis machines. In this study, a direct and simple measurement method using telescoping ball-bar system for volumetric errors for different types of five-axis machines was developed. The method using two-step measurement methodology and incorporating with derived error models, can quickly determine the five degrees-of-freedom (DOF) volumetric errors of five-axis machine tools. Comparing to most of the current used measurement methods, the proposed method provides the advantages of low cost, high efficiency, easy setup, and high accuracy.
