Development of Parallel Grinding System of Aspheric Optics

Abstract:

Article Preview

The roughness and profiles accuracy of aspheric surface are two key factors affecting the resolution and other characteristics of optical instruments. In this paper a new grinding system-parallel grinding system was built, and an CNC system controlled by PMAC (programmable multi-axis controller) was developed, the parallel grinding system can realize Arc Envelope Grinding Method (AEGM) only through controlling 2-axis and the wear of wheel was diminished, the tool path calculation was simplified. Using this system, the roughness and profile accuracy of aspheric surface are improved.
