Abstract: NC machine tools, which are widely employed in manufacturing systems, are basically driven by NC programs. However, it requires extensive amount of time and efforts to generate high quality tool paths before a machining operation. An NC program for five-axis control machining is more difficult to generate because the motion of machine tool is more complicated. In this paper, a new architecture is proposed to autonomously control the machine tool without an NC program for more rapid and flexible machining. A technique called digital copy milling is developed to generate the tool paths in real time based on the principle of copy milling. It means that the cutting parameters can be adaptively controlled in order to maintain stable cutting process and to avoid the cutting troubles. In the experimental verification, the improved digital copy milling system for five-axis control milling successfully detected and avoided tool collision in real-time.

Abstract: The drilling assisted by ultrasonic elliptical vibration (UEV) is proposed in present paper. The drilling system assisted by UEV was developed. The characteristics of the drilling process assisted by UEV are analyzed. The effect of ultrasonic elliptical vibration on the axial drilling force, the radial drilling force and the chip thickness are investigated experimentally. The experimental results show that the axial drilling force, the variation of the radial drilling force and the chip thickness of drilling assisted by UEV can be reduced.

Abstract: In the present paper, the thrust cutting force model in ultrasonic elliptical vibration cutting is proposed based on the principle of ultrasonic elliptical vibration cutting, and the reason of the thrust cutting force reduced by applying ultrasonic elliptical vibration is clarified theoretically. The effect of ultrasonic elliptical vibration on the thrust cutting force is verified experimentally.

Abstract: The influence of the ultrasonic vibrated diamond tool on the transition of ductile cutting to brittle cutting of the glasses is investigated by facing turning. It is understood that the critical depth of cut for the ductile cutting of the brittle materials is increased obviously by the ultrasonic vibrated diamond tool. The optical quality surface of the glasses is obtained, the surface roughness of which is less than0.03m. Finally, the relation between the roughness of machined surface and the cutting distance is studied experimentally.

Abstract: Micro axis-symmetric aspherical glass lenses are being increasingly used in digital devices and optical devices. The glass lenses are molded by using micro ceramic dies such as tungsten carbide [1].Recently, as the pixel number of digital image sensors increases, the accuracy of micro molding dies are required to be much more precise than ever [2]. In this study, ultrasonic assisted polishing method is proposed and developed in order to finish micro axis-symmetric aspherical dies which were pre-ground with a diamond wheel [3]. In this paper, the proposed polishing method was applied to the micro aspherical molding dies to finish form compensation processing.
