Research and Simulation on the Wear Uniformity of Lapping Plate


Article Preview

Lapping plate wear is of great influence on shape precision of workpiece. Investigation on the wear uniformity of uncertain eccentricity plane lapping was carried out in this research. The relative velocity function of the plate to the workpiece is obtained through kinematic analyses in the mode of uncertain eccentricity plane lapping, and material removal rate (MRR) function and wear uniformity function were deduced based on Preston equation. Effects of the ratio and eccentricities on the wear uniformity are discussed in detail through MATLAB simulation. Theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the ratio k1 of workpiece revolution speed to lapping plate is the key to decide whether the lapping plate is lapped uniformly. Theoretically, when k1<0, the greater |k1| is, the better the lapped uniformly of lapping plate can be. The ratio k2 of workpiece rotation speed to lapping plate has great influence on the lapped uniformly when k1 approximate 1, and k2 has little influence on the lapped uniformly when k1<0 or k1>1, Besides, a bit bigger eccentricity e1 is propitious to the lapping uniformly of the lapping plate, and bigger eccentricity e2 are also helpful to lapping uniformly of the lapping plate. And the conclusion could be extended to single-side plane lapping and double-side plane lapping process.
