    Abstract

    This work demonstrates the state of the art capabilities of three error separation techniques for nanometer-level measurement of precision spindles and rotationally-symmetric artifacts. Donaldson reversal is compared to a multi-probe and a multi-step technique using a series of measurements carried out on a precision aerostatic spindle with a lapped spherical artifact. The results indicate that sub-nanometer features in both spindle error motion and artifact form are reliably resolved by all three techniques.
