Thermomechanical transfer functions and control of a machine tool cooling system

Abstract

Nowadays the cooling systems are more than ever applied into the structure of a machine tool, but unfortunately there are no efforts being made in the control of the cooling systems, which doesn’t allow complete utilisation of their possibilities. This paper presents active cooling control (ACC) system, based on thermal transfer functions, which was experimentally tested on an inbuilt cooling jacket of a machine tool electrospindle.
