The dynamics of the rotating tool commonly employed in deep hole honing is considered. The mathematical model of the process including the dynamic model of the tool and the interaction of the workpiece surface and honing sticks is analyzed. The honing tool is modeled as a continuous slender beam with a honing mandrel attached at the intermediate cross section. A single row of stones on the tool rotates and has reciprocational motion in the axial direction. The honing stones are expanded to the machined surface by a special rigid mechanism that provides cutting of workpiece cylindrical surface and which vibrates in the transverse and axial directions. The removal of chip and the tool vibrations cause the variation of expansion pressure and depend on the surface state formed by previous honing stone. The equations of new surface formation are separated as a specific set of the dynamic model. These equations inherently consider the regenerative effect of oscillations during cutting. The expansion pressure, tool stiffness, and technology conditions are considered as varying parameters since their influence on the process are different. The process productivity and precision can be improved by choosing rational conditions evaluated by simulation. The corresponding models and results of numerical simulation are presented. All the results are given in dimensionless form and therefore they are applicable to a wide range of real manufacturing process conditions. The model of new surface formation presented allows the simulation of the machined surface variation in time and to predict workpiece accuracy and possible correction of surface errors.
