  • This paper overviews the development of the single diamond machines used in weapons and commercial fields, and introduces nowadays widely-used commercial ultra-precision diamond turning machines. Then, it analyzes the key techniques to achieve nanometer-level precision machining, such as air bearing work spindles, oil hydrostatic bearing X/Z slides, work piece measurement error compensation, optical tool setters, Linear Variable Differential Transformer(LVDT) tool setters and adaptive control systems. Finally, it summarizes the materials suitable for diamond turning, and introduces the fast tool servo and slow slide servo used in the manufacturing of opto-mechanical components. By taking drop-in assembly of a Cassegrain telescope and an fine optical system for examples, this paper shows the important effort of the ultra-precision diamond turning in photoelectric products.
