Abstract

This paper presents a study of cutting strategies on the surface generation in single-point diamond turning of micro V-groove patterns on precision roller drums. An aluminium precision roller drum with a diameter 250mm and 100 long was diamond turned with a V-groove pattern. A series of cutting experiments were designed to study the effect of the variation of various cutting parameters and cutting tool paths on the surface quality in diamond turning of the precision roller drum. The parameters under investigation included the depth of cut, number of steps and the depth for each cut when diamond turning V-grooves on the cylindrical surface of a workpiece. The measurement result indicates that the surface quality of V-grooves machined on the precision roller drums is affected by cutting strategies. The optimal cutting strategy for machining a V-groove pattern on a precision drum with 5μm depth was obtained.
