Paper Abstract

In this paper, the chatter observed in the deterministic microgrinding of optical glasses is examined. Because chatter adversely affects ground surface quality, understanding and eliminating chatter could significantly reduce total fabrication time. First, a description of the characteristics of chatter marks observed on ground glass surfaces is presented. Next, a model for chatter generation during grinding is described. In this model, a linearized formula for chip area is derived and a parameter (the process cutting stiffness) predicting the possibility of chatter is introduced. Finally, experimental results are presented.
