This paper describes the application of the finite element method to calculate the dynamic response of a spinning polygon, motor, and motor housing used in xerographic printers. Initially, different levels of model sophistication were evaluated showing convergence to a representative model. Using the converged model, the dynamic response of the polygon mirror was evaluated from the effects of base excitation. Frequency correlation in the 0 to 1000 hertz range was demonstrated to be better than 10% when compared to a dynamic modal test. Mechanical gain correlation at the fundamental rotor resonance was of the same order as the modal test with amplitude variations attributed to the assumed damping of the model, and differences between empirical and analytical response locations. Conclusions and recommendations on future work are also cited.
