An Analysis of the Thermal Deformation of the Main Spindle for Small and Precision Lathe

Jian, Jin,Ko, Tae-Jo,Kim, Hee-Sool,


Multi-function and miniaturization of the medical equipment and tele-communication systems need small and high precision machined parts. For the economic machining of the small size workpiece it should be machined by small and high precision machine tools with high speed machining. The belt type driving system in turning lathe has a limitation of spindle speeds because of the vibrations from driving mechanism, built-in type of driving mechanism is used to reduce the vibration. However, the main spindle of the built-in motor is connected directly to the motor, so the heat generation of the motor and bearing makes bad influence of the accuracy of machine tools. In this study, the analysis of heat generation from motor and bearings supporting main spindle and experiment were carried out. The results of theoretical simulation of temperature and deformation of the main spindle are good agreement with those of measured.
