Based on the theory of kinematics for multi-body system, the relative motion constraint equation is deduced according to the structure layout and the error distribution of the ultra-precision lathe Nanoform200. By solving the constraint equation, the corrective NC code is derived that can compensate the geometric errors. The error compensation software is developed aimed at the ultra precision manufacturing of optics parts. The cutting experiments show that the method and model in this paper can improve the accuracy about 50% for the ultra-precision turning of optical parts.
