Paper Abstract

The vibration of the spindle system of the diamond turning lathe has a great influence on the geometry of workpieces. The low frequency vibration will distort form of the workpieces, and the high frequency vibration will damage finish of them. The author has developed a optical method for testing form and roughness of optical surfaces simultans., eously. By using this method, the form and the roughness of the diamond turned surfaces is tested, the readings are sent to microcomputer, the relation between the frequency characters of the spindle system vibration and the power spectrum of the form and roughness of the diamond turned surfaces are set up by FFT analysis. This is a simple, high speed, automated, and non-destructive testing technique, and workpieces needn't removing from the lathe. So that it is easy to realize on-line monitoring of the diamond turned surfaces by means of this technique. Furthermore it is possible to diagnose the diamond turning lathe by using this method.
