Research on Material Removal Characteristics in Plane Lapping Method for Aspherical Surface Using Elastic Deformation
Plane lapping method using the elasticity of materials has many advantages comparing with current machining method for aspherical surface machining. Due to the deformation of the workpiece, the material removal characteristics of this method are different from the traditional lapping process of flat surface. In this paper, based on the Preston equation and plate theory, the theoretical model of the material remove rate is built in the case of proving experiment. Then the proving experiment of elastic deformation method is carried out, the recorded values fit well with theoretical ones, which shows that the theoretical model of material removal property is valid and the variation of MRR is related to the deformed profile of workpiece.
