Abstract

Deterministic micro-cutting processes such as diamond micro-milling, raster fly-cutting and micro-grinding are used to efficiently manufacture optical quality freeform surfaces like the one in Figure 1a) [1]. High stiffness spindles with low synchronous and asynchronous error motions improve the micro-machining process. This paper describes design and testing of a 50,000 RPM ultra-precision micro-machining air bearing spindle capable of producing optical quality surfaces.
