To study the sphere-shaping mechanism under dual rotating plates (DRP) lapping mode for ceramic balls, the uniformity of lapping trace distribution is focused in this paper. Methods for simulation and evaluation of the lapping trace uniformity are proposed, and the effect of velocity parameters on the lapping uniformity of ball under DRP lapping mode is analyzed. It is found that the lapping uniformity is dependent not only on the variation range of spin angle θ, but also on the spin angle speed ωb and on the variation form of θ. The analysis results indicate that the effect of amplitude of the speed ratio function on the lapping uniformity is much greater than the effect of phase on that. When the ratio of the inner plate speed to the outer varies from 0 to2, the best lapping uniformity is obtained under the conditions demanded by this paper.
