Paper Abstract

Diamond fly-cutting machines have been developed to cut specular surfaces on flat parts with a high precision, both for flatness and accurate location of related surfaces on the parts. One natural application of diamond machining is the fabrication of optical scanners. Ancillary tools and fixtures are an important consideration in this process, which with proper evaluation can favorably influence scanner cost and performance. This paper discusses typical tools and fixtures in relation to the components and machine. The ultimate payoff of careful fixture design is better performance for less money.
