- An experimental investigation of spindle rotary error on high-speed machining center. Jin, Lan; Yan, Zhaoyang; Xie, Liming; Gou, Weidong; Tang, Linhu // International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology;Jan2014, Vol. 70 Issue 1-4, p327
A method is described in this paper for measuring the spindle rotation error and a technique for separating the eccentric error caused by setup error of the master cylinder. The system consists of two non-contact capacitance sensors used to measure the radial displacement of the rotating master...
- DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS ANALYSIS OF HIGH SPEED MOTORIZED SPINDLE. ABUTHAKEER, S.Syath; MOHANRAM, P. V.; Mohan KUMAR, G. // Annals of the Faculty of Engineering Hunedoara - International J;Jul-Sep2012, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p207
High speed machining (HSM) is a capable technology for drastically increasing productivity and reducing production costs. Development of high-speed spindle technology is strategically critical to the implementation of HSM. Compared to conventional spindles, motorized spindles are equipped with...
- High Speed Machining Without The Fast Spindle. Zelinski, Peter // Modern Machine Shop;Oct2007, Vol. 80 Issue 5, p50
The article presents information on high speed machining without the fast spindle. Axial chip thinning is a way of cheating, sort of, to achieve a higher feed rate. At least it seems like cheating. Under the influence of chip thinning, the chip thickness no longer equals the advance per tooth....
