This paper proposes a novel method to on-machine determine the three error components of a precision linear slide: the straightness motion, the yaw and the roll under the effect of thermal distortion caused by friction and drive. The Integrated Sensing System (ISS) is then introduced for implementing this novel method on an illustrative model of a linear slide. The error separation algorithm used in the system is based on the Fourier Eight Sensor (F8S) method. The theory and procedures are presented, and computer results are analyzed. The effectiveness of the novel method is validated through computer simulations.
