The unbalanced vibration of the spindle rotor system in high-speed cutting processes not only seriously affects the surface quality of the machined products, but also greatly reduces the service life of the electric spindle. However, since the unbalanced vibration is often distributed on different node positions, the multinode unbalanced vibration greatly exacerbates the difficulty of vibration control. Based on the traditional influence coefficient method for controlling the vibration of a flexible rotor, the optimal influence coefficient control method with weights for multinode unbalanced vibration of flexible electric spindle rotors is proposed. The unbalanced vibration of all nodes on the whole spindle rotor is used as the control objective function to achieve optimal control. The simulation results show that the method has an obvious control effect on multinode unbalanced vibration.
