Modal Analysis and Optimal Design of High-Speed Turning Center’s Spindle Box
This article is to provide a method to make the structure of machine tools lightened and improve its anti-vibration capacity. Modal analysis with pre-stress of High-speed Turning Center’s spindle box was performed using ANSYS Workbench; based on the above results, we optimized the spindle box using topological optimization and dimensional optimization methods. Finally, we make the spindle box’s weight reduce by 4.44%, its first order frequency increase by 15.82%, its first mode maximum amplitude decrease by 9.18%.
