Paper Abstract

An OptiPro UltraForm Finisher 300 (UFF) was used to produce removal spots on Fused Silica ground surfaces. The goal of this research was to assess the relationship between Belt Compression (μm) and Material Removal Rate (mm3/min) for compressions ranging from 2 to 100 μm. With this data the validity of the Preston Equation for these small compressions was also assessed. The data displays trends for the dependence on compression of Material Removal Rate (MRR), and spot dimensions—Spot Depth, Spot Length, and Spot Width. Compressions ranging from 2 to 25 μm require further investigation to establish clearer correlations.
