Paper Abstract

A detailed mechanical design of a large diameter (120-inch radius) centrifuge was completed. The overall g-stability of the system under all operating conditions is projected to be 5 ppm. The design includes an externally pressurized dual gas bearing main axis spindle and a two-degree of freedom platform. Significant design features and methods are discussed.
