The Effect of Clamping Force on Static and Dynamic Characteristics of Spindle-Tooling System
This paper investigates the effect of spindle clamping force on the static and dynamic characteristics of the spindle-tooling system through measuring the frequency response function of the tool end point in variable spindle clamping force. The research shows that the limited static stiffness increases accordingly and normal static stiffness changes little as the spindle champing force increases. The high spindle clamping force leads to reduce the modal damping of the spindle-tooling system while the natural frequency varies slight. The analyses of process stability indicates that the low spindle clamping force can improves the process stability because of the higher damping in some clamping force range.
