STUDY & DESIGN OF A SPECIAL TEST BENCH FOR HYDROSTATIC SPINDLE HOUSINGS
This paper deals with the study, design, manufacturing & testing of a particular scientific instrument, functional to investigate hydrostatic bushing behaviour under various experimental conditions. Job was conducted in concurrence with one of the leading companies in rotary transfer machines business. Machining is performed by hydrostatic unit, in which spindle assembly is contained in a sliding tube supported by a set of hydrostatic bushings. In this paper we will detail the design of a “research & test” bench whose aim is to help in developing new hydrostatic bushing systems.
