Compensating for thermally caused dimensional changes in the cryolathe.

Abstract

Dimensional changes in the Barraquer cryolathe , resulting from contraction due to refrigeration, can exert a considerable effect on the dimensions of the lathed lenticule . We have devised a simple technique for re- zeroing the cryolathe after freezing. This procedure negates the effects of the dimensional changes and thereby improves the accuracy of shaping the lenticules .
