This work investigates vibration-supported, force-controlled fine machining with elastic bonded mounted points for automated fine processing of mould steel samples. The aim is to compare conventional robot- or machine-tool-based face grinding with a vibration-supported grinding process. The influence of vibration support on the surface topography is investigated primarily to minimize kinematically caused grinding traces. First, the state of the art for the production of tool moulds and vibration-supported fine machining is explained. On this basis, the potentials for the reduction of grinding marks through vibration support for an increase in the degree of automation are derived and the experimental procedure is introduced. Subsequently, robot-based grinding tests with vibration support are carried out and compared with conventional grinding tests. After the tests carried out, the results are evaluated using tactile and optical measuring methods.
