Abstract
The single point diamond turning (SPDT) lathe of vertical flying cutting milling style is one important ultra-precision machining method for Large-aperture optics. To realize ultra-precision machining with SPDT technology, the turning spindle of the machine tools should be with higher stiffness and stability. In this paper, based on finite element method (FEM), an iterative procedure is proposed and implemented to solve the fluid dynamic model and structure model for simulation the couple of air pressure and structure flexibility. Simulation results show that pressure in the air gap makes the plate deform and this deformation produced by the pressure adversely modifies the pressure distribution. Experimental results indicate that the method can predict the aerostatic spindle stiffness accurately, the prediction error is about 2.04%. These results show a relevant influence of the structural flexibility of the bearing on its static performance.
