Abstract
This paper will trace the evolution and development of single point diamond tool precision machining equipment from a simple single axis machine to a two axis CNC/Interferometer controlled lathe for machining of contoured optical surfaces. The design criteria basic to such machines to control machine rigidity, friction, geometrical accuracy, vibration, temperature, and positioning accuracy will be discussed. Various surfaces and the machine configurations suitable for producing them are listed.
