Dynamic Analysis of Slender Shaft in Twin-Spindle Turning
Machining slender workpiece is still a technical difficulty. This paper investigates the dynamic behavior of a slender shaft subject to constant feedrate moving cutting forces in twin-spindle turning process. The Euler-Bernoulli theory is used to model the rotating shaft. A dynamic cutting force model is formulated considering the flexibility of workpiece and rigid machine tool. The modal analysis method is employed to solve the dynamic response of the shaft. The parametric influence to the response and natural frequencies of shaft is discussed. Finally, the results are presented and compared between constant cutting forces and deflection-dependent force model introduced in this paper. It is found that there exists a stiffening effect due to the cutting process.
