Paper Abstract

Low temperature glass molding technology is the main method on volume-producing high precision middle and small diameter optical cells in the future. While the accuracy of the molding die will effect the cell precision, so the high precision molding die development is one of the most important part of the low temperature glass molding technology. The molding die is manufactured from high rigid and crisp metal alloy, with the ultrasonic vibration character of high vibration frequency and concentrative energy distribution; abrasive particles will impact the rigid metal alloy surface with very high speed that will remove the material from the work piece. Ultrasonic can make the rigid metal alloy molding die controllable polishing and reduce the roughness and surface error. Different from other ultrasonic fabrication method, untouched ultrasonic polishing is applied on polish the molding die, that means the tool does not touch the work piece in the process of polishing. The abrasive particles vibrate around the balance position with high speed and frequency under the drive of ultrasonic vibration in the liquid medium and impact the workspace surface, the energy of abrasive particles come from ultrasonic vibration, while not from the direct hammer blow of the tool. So a nummular vibrator simple harmonic vibrates on an infinity plane surface is considered as a model of ultrasonic polishing working condition. According to Huygens theory the sound field distribution on a plane surface is analyzed and calculated, the tool removing function is also deduced from this distribution. Then the simple point ultrasonic polishing experiment is proceeded to certificate the theory validity.
