Paper Abstract

After presenting a rule of thumb to evaluate the economical benefit of diamond turning compared to conventional polishing, applications of spinner mirrors, injection molding masters, and X-ray optics are discussed. Non-optical applications are included as well as precision grinding materials incompatible with diamond turning. KEY WORDS: Diamond Turning, Precision Machining, Precision Grinding, Quartz Grinding, X-ray Optics.
