Paper Abstract

To realize high-precision glass molding, some themes are yet to be settled, including performance of molding machine, molding conditions, material and accuracy of molds. To get a desired product profile with predetermined accuracy, molds must be manufactured according to specified accuracy. The present molding machine has a high transferability of fine profile, but causes minor difference in profiles by thermal expansion and contraction of mold and glass material as it involves a heating process. We clarify the results of experiment and verification of the two methods , in consideration of a heat expansion difference, molds is manufactured beforehand and feedback of geometrical error of prototype mold product to mold profile.
