This paper reviews an interesting characteristic of the multi-probe error separation technique for removing the contribution of target form error in spindle measurements. Briefly, the calculations require the repeated inversion of a matrix whose frequency-dependent contents may become illconditioned at predictable harmonics. As has been shown previously, it is very important choose the sensor angles wisely, because poor choices lead to disastrous results, even at relatively low harmonics (i.e., undulations per revolution).
