Abstract

Laser interferometers have traditionally been a synonymous of very accurate metrology for very accurate machines, therefore being used only on "metal cutting" machine tools. In the early 90's most of the laser manufacturers developed dynamic software, able to measure displacements, speeds and accelerations versus time, which were considered as an enhancement of the laser performance, but without probably thinking of some possible new fields of application, which in effect have never been advertised so far. STANIMUC, besides assuring secretariat and chairmanship to both Technical Committees ISO/TC 39 "Machine tools" and CEN/TC 143 "Safety of machine tools", have always offered to industry a service of machine tool calibration, testing, noise measurements, safety consultancy, etc.. This allowed ST
