For a detailed procedure see BMT Live Drive Turret Vibration Test
Install an empty live tool holder in tool #1. Install the accelerometer on the driven tool.
Set the Averages to 8.
Right click on the plot and highlight X-Axis, click on CPM.
Right click on the plot and highlight Y-Axis, click on Vibration Displacement.
Right click on the plot and highlight Y-Axis, Scaling, click on .1 mil.
Run the live tooling at 6000 RPM and start the vibe test. NTE 0.01 MIL at 6000 CPM (RPM)
If the plot is out of tolorance, re-align the drive and test again.
Use another driven tool to verify that it is not causing the issue.
Verify alignment with the correct tooling before any parts are replaced.
Possible parts that cause vibration are the bearing and live drive shaft or the servo motor and coupler. Another cause could be a coolant leak in the turret. Verify that no coolant is found in the turret if replacing parts. Coolants leaks happen if there is porosity in the turret.
