  • Patent number: 10137555
    Abstract: A machine tool includes a spindle retaining a tool, a spindle motor, a feed device relatively moving a workpiece and a tool with a feed motor, a spindle motor control unit, and a feed motor control unit. In a method of machining a workpiece with the machine tool, the spindle motor control unit continuously varies a rotational speed of the spindle in a periodic or non-periodic manner with a predetermined amplitude with respect to a target rotational speed. The feed motor control unit continuously varies a relative moving speed between the tool and the workpiece in synchronization with the spindle motor such that a ratio of the rotational speed of the spindle to the moving speed does not become constant at least in a predetermined time zone in which a spindle speed reaches a maximal value and a predetermined time zone in which the spindle speed reaches a minimal value.
