Paper Abstract

The high-precision grinding technology is making contribution in every field, which is especially remarkable in the optics-related field. Lenses for digital camera and projector, which are mass-produced, for instance, are molded by the injection molding machine and glass molding-press machine. Concerning materials of high-precision molds, nickel alloy is mainly used in plastic-molding. And brittle material such as tungsten carbide and ceramic is used in glass-molding because the molding temperature is generally high. High-precision machining of nickel alloy is possible with a single-crystal diamond tool. Brittle material is ground by means of a diamond wheel, etc.
