Description

Very minor test part experience of the all-rotary machine has been obtained. Results at this point appear to verify that the machines (both in the three axis and in the phonograph configuration) are inherently more accurate than machines with slides. Much more work is needed to define the desirable operating parameters and the size capacity of the all rotary machine. A second generation three axis machine is in the design stage which abandons mounting the vertical axes from the top, and instead has three vertical axes at various pin points of link points on a complex tool arm. The part ... continued below

Description

Very minor test part experience of the all-rotary machine has been obtained. Results at this point appear to verify that the machines (both in the three axis and in the phonograph configuration) are inherently more accurate than machines with slides. Much more work is needed to define the desirable operating parameters and the size capacity of the all rotary machine. A second generation three axis machine is in the design stage which abandons mounting the vertical axes from the top, and instead has three vertical axes at various pin points of link points on a complex tool arm. The part then spins on a fixed axis. This machine is conceived to produce large diameter contoured laser mirrors with great accuracy. Going to a complex set of tool arm linkages greatly reduces the weight and forces on components to be moved during machining, reducing further the very minute deflection in the machining process.
