ARTICLE INFO Spindle is an important component of a vertical machining center .The spindle has some slots, shape change, geometrical discontinuities that affect the stress concentration and the notch sensitivity. The results of the fatigue analysis of the spindle are greatly affected by factors such as type of loading, surface finish, surface treatment. Therefore, the analysis of the spindle for fatigue analysis is the basic objective of this dissertation. In this dissertation work, the

The modeling as well as the analysis of the the spindle is done by using ANSYSR15.0 software. The Fatigue analysis of the, plane shaft carrying same input conditions, and, spindle undertaken are compared to signify the effect of the each geometry change on the shaft.
