1 January 1987 An Optical Cam Program For Automatic Production-Engineering Of A Lens
Author Affiliations +
The program automatically designs and draws all parts and tools that are needed for manufacturing spherical lenses. The input is the lens production drawing; the output consists of production drawings of all the tools. Two blocking methods (pitch bonding and recessing) are available, each defining a complete set of tools. The program is integrated with the Euclid CAD system, and can be operated either in an interactive mode (on a graphic CAD screen), or in a batch mode.
