Simulation Study on the Developed Eccentric V-Grooves Lapping Mode for Precise Ball
A novel lapping mode is developed on the base of present eccentric v-grooves lapping mode for precise balls. The kinematics analysis shows that the ball spin axis can wiggle up to 180° under the developed mode, so the lapping trace will be dispersed onto the whole surface of the ball. The effect of offsetting and groove radius on the lapping uniformity in the developed eccentric v-grooves, the present eccentric v-grooves and the traditional v-grooves lapping mode are compared, and the advantage of the developed mode is that the impact offsetting is less while the groove radius has no impact.
