A facility has been developed to calibrate co-ordinate measuring machine analogue probes to an accuracy of 0.1 ­µm. A high precision three-axis translation stage moves the probe stylus and the position of the stage is determined by three mutually-orthogonal laser interferometer transducers. The co-ordinates indicated by the probe are compared with the co-ordinates indicated by the interferometers and the errors of the probe are then calculated. The working volume of the facility is 2 x 2 x 2 mm. The full measurement strategy and design considerations of the facility are discussed and results are given to demonstrate its performance.
