The latest complimentary guide on a successful spindle bearing set up is now available at EmersonBearing.com.
In the machine tool industry, spindles are a critical component used to shape materials through the use of high-speed rotation and pressure. Optimal bearing selection must be determined through considerations about the properties required by the main spindle being used such as maximum speed, radial and axial rigidities.
Boston based Emerson Bearing, a bearing company catering to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) markets around the world, offers their latest free resource, “Super Precision Bearings for Machine Tools: Factors for A Successful Spindle Bearing Set up” as a guide and overview on what you need to know for a successful bearing set up.
Essentially, there are four separate categories for bearings used in machine tool spindles: Angular-Contact Ball Bearings; Radial or Deep-Groove Bearings; Roller Bearings; and Thrust Ball Bearings. The guide explains it all – from rigidity of spindle, preloading, bearing arrangement options and much more.
“Machining equipment is required to be faster, more precise, and more durable than ever before and bearings are crucial parts that direct and enhance spindle movement,” explained Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing Boston.“The use of high quality bearings improves the efficiency and reliability of machine tool spindles, thereby increasing production and reducing wear and tear on machinery.”
