  • A multi-million dollar retrofit project was initiated to update a number of older numerical control machine tools. The retrofit replaced the servo control systems, the indexing motors, drive systems and spindle motor. One machine was upgraded as a prototype, but several dynamic problems in both the indexing systems and spindle drive became apparent. These dynamic problems were unacceptable in their effect on machining accuracy. Acoustic intensity measurements were used to pinpoint the source of an irritating 3 KHz tone. This tone indicated a significant amount of energy resulting in a high displacement in the indexing motors. Frequency response measurements ofmore » the motor response vs the power supply input quantified the motor problem and the acoustic levels. Modal analysis was applied to the axial resonances of the index motors to determine the response of the mechanical coupling and run up/down tests were used to determine the spindle motor drive problems. 8 figs.« less
  • The main L-band linacs of the ILC accelerate 2820 bunches from a center of mass of 10 GeV to 500 GeV (and in the proposed later upgrade, to 1 TeV). The emittance of the vertical plane is approximately 400 times less than that of the horizontal plane. Provided the vertical and horizontal mode dipole frequencies are degenerate then the motion in each plane is not coupled. However, in reality the frequency degeneracy is split and the eigenmodes are shifted due to inevitable manufacturing errors introduced in fabricating 20,000 cavities. This gives rise to a transverse coupling in the horizontal-vertical motionmore » and can readily lead to a dilution in the emittance in the vertical plane. We investigate means to ameliorate this effect dilution by splitting the horizontal-vertical tune of the lattice.« less
  • The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is developing a large space-truss to support a micro-precision interferometer. A finite element model will be used to design and place passive and active elements in the truss to suppress vibration. To improve the model's predictive capability, it is desirable to identify uncertain structural parameters in the model by utilizing experimental modal data. Testing of both the components and the system was performed to obtain the data necessary to identify the structural parameters. Extracting a modal model, absent of bias errors, from measured data requires great care in test design and implementation. Testing procedures that aremore » discussed include: verification of non-constraining shaker attachment, quantification of the non-linear structural response, and the design and effects of suspension systems used to simulate a free structure. In addition to these procedures, the accuracy of the measured frequency response functions are evaluated by comparing functions measured with random excitation, using various frequency resolutions, and with step sine excitation.« less
