Paper Abstract

This paper presents a simple method of axisymmetric wear pattern calculation covering all cases normally encountered on con-ventional polishing machines. The techniques were developed for use with small programmable calculators to make them available to the small-shop personnel for whom this paper is written. Polishing pad design and drives are also discussed.
