In recent years, large numbers of patents have been devoted to evaluating the dynamic characteristics of coupled
double-rotor spindle system of high speed grinder for significant improvement in both the removal rate and quality of
grinding. This study was focused on the theoretical modeling and numerical simulation about the dynamic characteristics
of coupled double-rotor spindle system of high speed grinder. The influences of the grinder spindle’s major structural parameters
on its critical speed and vibration mode were investigated. The results showed that the critical speeds of coupled
double-rotor system were arranged in a similar increasing order as to those of each single rotor. It was thus indicated that
the critical speeds of each order for coupled double-rotor system corresponded to those of single rotor. Furthermore, we
analyzed the effect of preload of bearing, overhang length, span of bearing, rotor structure and mass of spindle system on
critical speeds of various orders for the coupled spindle system. The results showed that increased bearing rigidity could
increase critical speeds of each order and the effect of overhang length of coupled rotors was the superimposition of effect
of single rotor on critical speeds of each order of the coupled double order system. The critical speeds of spindle system of
coupled double-rotor system could be decreased by increasing the mass of its spindle system.
