The processing accuracy and productivity of metal-cutting machines are largely determined by the initial characteristics of the spindle assembly, since it is the last link in the kinematic chain of the main drive. Therefore, high demands are placed on spindle assemblies to ensure high rotational accuracy, high speed, parametric reliability, etc. Since the movement of shaping is carried out by the spindle and spindle bearings, they make a decisive contribution to the initial characteristics of the spindle units.

The installation of spindles on gas bearings makes it possible to significantly increase the accuracy of rotation and speed of the spindle, almost completely eliminate its vibration, simplify the design and significantly increase the parametric reliability of the spindle assembly. The parameters of the gas lubricating layer in the conical bearings of the spindle are investigated and the equation of gas pressure in the gaps of the gas conical bearing with grooves of different profiles applied to the bearing shaft of the spindle is derived. The optimal geometric parameters of the profile of longitudinal blind grooves applied to the working surfaces of the spindle shaft are determined. Investigations were carried out using numerical methods using modern software.

History of journal:

In June 1994 the 2nd International Scientific and Technical Conference "Application of vibrations for technological purposes" was organized on the basis of Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute. Leading experts in this field, noting the significant contribution to the school of Vibration Engineering under the leadership of P. S. Bernyk, proposed to create a professional all-Ukrainian scientific and technical journal "Vibration in engineering and technology..The journal was foundedat Vinnytsia State Agricultural Institute and P.S. Bernyk was elected to be the chief editor .
For all these years (since 1994) theJournal "vibration in engineering and technology" published  94 issues wherestudy of vibration effects, the creation of progressive energy saving technologies and equipment for their implementation were highlighted.
Currently Kaletnik H.M  PhD , professor, academician NAAS is the chief editor of the "Vibrations in engineering  and Technology"
The journal "Vibration in Engineering and technology", which has no analogues on the territory of Ukraine, is well known abroad.
