Theoretic Analysis and Simulation on Horizontal Spindle Barrel Finishing
At present, crankshafts are finished mostly by abrasive cloth and manual steel brush, which is not ideal on finishing quality, efficiency, cost and cleanness degree. So a new process, horizontal spindle barrel finishing, is developed. By theoretic research and simulation, main factors for finishing effect and uniformity are analyzed. The research indicates that this process is very effective for crankshafts, and has also positive influence on efficiency and auto product line.
