16 December 1976 Ultra-Precision Turning - The Machines And Equipment
Author Affiliations +
The Machine Tool Industry, as a whole, has not been willing because of the generally "one-shot" nature of ultra-precision machine requirements, to enter this field of precision machines. However, as the accuracy trend of "standard" machine tools has always been toward lower tolerances, a point is reached where new systems and state of the art components must be evaluated for incorporation in a new line of equipment to meet these accuracy needs. Thus, the entry of Ex-Ce110 Corporation into the ultra-precision machining field was a direct effort to extend their present capability into an area that future requirements will lead, if the present trend toward higher accuracy continues. This paper presents some data on equipment availability, experiences, problems, manufacturing and inspection capabilities and future possibilities of ultra-precision machining systems.
