Surface Characterization in Diamond Turning of Highly Anisotropy Brittle Crystals: A Multi-Spectrum Analysis Approach
This paper presents a multi-spectrum analysis method for the characterization of the surface generation in single-point turning of brittle single crystals. The features on the diamond turned surfaces were extracted and analysed by the power spectrum analysis of the surface roughness profiles measured at a number radial sections of the workpiece. By the analysis of the variation of the spectral patterns in the multi-spectrum plots, the surface roughness and materials effect on surface generation are found to be strongly related to the power spectrum. This provides an important means to explain quantitatively the effect of factors affecting the surface generation in diamond turning brittle crystals.
