On the Evaluation of Lapping Uniformity for Precision Balls
The precision and efficiency of lapping for balls are determined by the lapping uniformity. One method of evaluating the ball lapping uniformity for different lapping mode is proposed, which is based on kinematics analysis under the assumption of pure rolling. Lapping experiments of V-groove lapping mode, dual rotating plates (DRP) lapping mode, and dual-rotating eccentric V-groove (DREVG) lapping mode are carried out on steel balls, and the lapping traces are observed. The prediction of the evaluating method is in accordance with the experimental results.
