A High-speed Air Bearing Spindle

Abstract

Spindles for micro cutting are characterised by high rotational speeds. An electric motor or an impulse air turbine is commonly used to drive spindles for micro cutting. In this paper a viscous turbine is proposed to drive the spindle. To determine the dimensions of the rotor a parameter study is carried out to achieve a maximum torque. The boundary… (More)
