Abstract: An arc envelope grinding method for non-axisymmetric aspheric surface was proposed in order to achieve the mould core used for the precision injection molding of optic reflector. In grinding, the arc-shaped diamond grinding wheel trued on CNC grinder was used to envelope workpiece and generate curve surface, and the spacing distance between tool paths is controlled by the equal-envelope height between wheel and workpiece. In this paper, arc envelope grinding principle was investigated in connection with wheel coordinate calculation and tool path number. The theoretical analysis and grinding experiment showed that arc envelope grinding may improve form grinding efficiency especially for large curvature and smoothness of ground surface and a smooth curve surface can be produced when the equal-envelope height is less than a certain value.

Abstract: This paper describes a development of a real-time position capturing method in which branched encoder signals are recorded in external data storage, to evaluate motion trajectories of the XYZ table on ultra-precision machine tool. The method allows the capturing with minimal modification to the machine: without any additional sensors. In the previous study we generated a non-axisymmetric aspherical optical element by XZC-axis simultaneous numerical controlled ultra-precision turning process with 2 μm form deviation, the reason of form accuracy degradation wasn’t identified. Using the developed system, motion accuracy of ultra-precision machine tool is confirmed. The machine tool moves along circular trajectory in three coordinate planes (XY, YZ and ZX) respectively. The rotation direction of circle is set clock wise and counter clock wise. The circle processing interpolation command by linear interpolation control code and circular interpolation control code. The results showed the effectiveness of the proposed method for performance evaluations of machine tools, by revealing the influence of trajectory parameters on the magnitudes of quadrant protrusions.
