In the NC machine tools for automatic mass production processing lines, it is demanded that high stable machining accuracy is maintained for a long time. The main factor of deterioration in machining accuracy depends on the thermal deformation of machine tool, and the measures are one of the most important issues in the machine tool design. The thermal deformation is practically estimated by the temperature changing state of machine tools based on obtained data of their thermal deformation chracteristics. The estimation accuracy of thermal deformation depends on the thermometry points of machine tool greatly. This study describes an approach to the most suitable thermometry points in machine tool to determine the effective thermal deformation measures experimentally. As a result, the existence of points where the temperature of components changed with relation to thermal deformation very closely was confirmed.
