Research on V-Groove Angle of Rotated Dual-Plates Lapping Machine
The V-groove angle of the machine is considered as one of important factors affecting the processing and the ball’s precision. To study its effect, the three-dimensional model of RDP lapping machine is built and a series of simulations at different V-groove angles are carried out, using the software ADAMS based on the RDP principle. The influence of three parameters including spin angle, spin angular velocity and revolution angular velocity are discussed by observing and analyzing the simulation results. It is concluded that some optimized V-groove angles can improve the sphericity of ball; some ones can induce the balls to move back and roll during some periods of the processing.
