Paper Abstract

The increasing use of diamond machining in the production of high quality optical components requires the production process to be as simple as possible to enable the use of unskilled labour. A process has been developed using interferometry and computer image analysis to automate the initial set up of the diamond tool relative to the machine axes. This process is aimed at eliminating the ogive error caused by tool decentre sometimes found in diamond machined components.
