Abstract

In this paper, a study of the fabrication of optical microstructures by fast tool servo (FTS) machining technology is presented. The study started from locating the sources of error exclusively involved in ultra-precision machining with FTS, which are stroke error, spatial error, trajectory generation error and errors of cutting parameters such as spindle speed, depth of cut, feed rate, etc. Hence, a series of cutting tests and analyses have been carried out to characterize the systemic error of FTS system. The results show that stroke movement is one of the factors affecting the form accuracy of machined profile.
