Since computer controlled optical surfacing (CCOS) processes have been proposed in the 1960s, many processes are developed for precision optics successfully. In this present work, a novel approach, the precessions process, is proposed and used for large segments fabrication. The removal function of bonnet polisher based on velocity and pressure distribution, which are obtained from the geometry of the process tool-motion and Hertzian contact theory respectively, are simulated. A dynamic finite element analysis (FEA) model is constructed to optimize process parameters. At last, detailed experimental studies are carried out to verify the optimal parameters.
