Evaluation and Measurement of 3D Form Errors of Ground Curve Surface


Article Preview

Evaluation and measurement of form errors distributed on 3D ground curved surface are proposed due to the difficulty of processing measured points of 3D ground curve surface in comparison with axisymmetric curved surface. First form curved surface grinding is conducted by arc-shaped diamond grinding wheel, second ground curved surface is measured by contact measurement to obtain 3D measuring data, next transfer mode from CNC grinding to measuring reference frames is established, then effective and applicable 3D compensation arithmetic for probe sphere error is introduced, finally 3D form errors are investigated in connection with reference frame transfer and probe sphere compensation. It is confirmed that form error PV of is improved form 203 m / 8 cm2 is obtained by using reference frame transfer and probe sphere compensation, enhancing measuring accuracy by about 29 %.
