Abstract

The temperature control performance of a developed temperature feedback control system was experimentally investigated. The control system was based on a real-time temperature control of a cooling fluid. In particular, this study focused on the temperature control performance of a built-in motor spindle that used the developed temperature fedback control system. The built-in motor used in the study had water cooling jackets. The temperature of the built-in motor spindle was measured and feedback into the developed temperature feedback control system. Temperature control accuracy of the built-in motor spindle under steady state was then assessed. Furthermore, the effects of the time-variant changes in spindle rotation and ambient temperature on the performance of the temperature control system was investigated. The results of the experiments show that the temperature control accuracy of the built-in motor spindle under steady state condition was ±0.03°C. The temperature control performance of the built-in motor spindle under changes in the rotational speed of the spindle was examined. The experimental results show that the temperature change of the spindle could be suppressed to a maximum of approximately 0.3°C under transient state during sudden change in spindle speed. In addition, the effects of the changes in ambient and cooling water temperatures, which simulated actual environmental operating conditions, on the spindle temperature were investigated. The results show that the change in the spindle temperature could be suppressed by approximately less than ±0.1°C. These experimental results indicate that the developed temperature feedback control system achieved high temperature control accuracy and high response for the built-in motor spindle. In particular, the developed control system successfully controlled the time-variant change in the generated heat, thereby improving the thermal stability of the machine tool spindle.
