Paper Abstract

Ultra precision diamond machining is a well known technology for the manufacturing of optical components made of non ferrous, plastic and crystalline IR materials. The application of this process to ferrous materials is enabled through the ultrasonic assisted machining process, which has established its position in the market over the last years. Diamond machining of glass or even tungsten carbide is conventionally extremely limited. This presentation will discuss the possibilities that are given through the application of ultrasonic assistance to the conventional diamond cutting process on glass. The possibilities and the limits will be discussed.
