Finite Element Analysis of Spindle for Turning Center Based on ANSYS
The designed spindle of turning center is researched. There are two groups of the spring-damper elements to simulate the bearings. The spindle is modeled to be 3D FEM parametric model, and the static analysis, model analysis and harmonic analysis are finished in ANSYS. Static stiffness, natural frequency and dynamic stiffness are calculated, the danger points are checked according to the resonance modes, and the performance of the spindle is verified to be reliable.
