Modeling of dynamic properties of machine tools has a significant influence on improvement of its construction. This process is extremely important when a new construction of machine tool is under development. Experimental modal analysis provides information about frequency bandwidths with significant amplitudes of resonances, damping values and mode shapes. This information can be used in FEM model updating, stability prediction or finding weak elements of the machine tool structure as well.

In the paper the modal model of prototype of the micro machining center is presented. Polymax algorithm was used to estimate the poles (frequency, damping) of modal model and modal shapes. Modal model was built on the basis of the impact test results. Methodology of conducted experimental test is presented. Tested machine tool was made of different materials (steel, aluminum, stone and others) which causes difficulties during experimental investigations. In the construction different types of guideways were implemented — rolling, slide and pneumatic ones. Maximum rotational speed of the tool is about 100 000 rev/min, so the frequency range where poles of modal model are estimated is wide (high frequencies of excitation during machining). Weight of sensors used during testing is an important issue due to a low mass of the structure. Also the excitation of the structure is troublesome because of vulnerability of precise guideways and forces sensors used in machine tool construction.

Validation of the modal model is also presented in the paper and practical problems of modal testing are discussed.
