For on-machine measurement of workpiece position, orientation, and geometry on machine tools, five-axis continuous (scanning) measurement by using a laser displacement sensor has a strong advantage in its efficiency, compared to conventional discrete measurement using a touch-triggered contact probe. In any on-machine measurement schemes, major contributors to their measurement uncertainty are error motions of the machine tool itself. This paper formulates the influence of geometric errors of rotary axis average lines on the measurement uncertainty of the five-axis on-machine measurement by using a laser displacement sensor. To validate the present simulator, experimental comparison of measured and simulated trajectories is conducted on five-axis on-machine measurement of a precision sphere of the precalibrated geometry. For total 28 paths measured on the spherical surface, an error in the simulated trajectories from measured trajectories (properly low-pass filtered) was at maximum 5 μm. Uncertainty assessment demonstration for more practical application example of a turbine blade measurement is also presented.
