Paper Abstract

This paper describes a novel cylindrical capacitive sensor (CCS) to measure the spindle five degree-of-freedom (DOF) motion errors. The operating principle and mathematical models of the CCS are presented. Using Ansoft Maxwell software to calculate the different capacitances in different configurations, structural parameters of end face electrode are then investigated. Radial, axial and tilt motions are also simulated by making comparisons with the given displacements and the simulation values respectively. It could be found that the proposed CCS has a high accuracy for measuring radial motion error when the average eccentricity is about 15 μm. Besides, the maximum relative error of axial displacement is 1.3% when the axial motion is within [0.7, 1.3] mm, and the maximum relative error of the tilt displacement is 1.6% as rotor tilts around a single axis within [-0.6, 0.6]°. Finally, the feasibility of the CCS for measuring five DOF motion errors is verified through simulation and analysis.
