Good measurements make setups faster, reduce recuts and identify potential spindle or holder issues before they become bigger problems. Let’s look at a few of the key areas to measure and the handy solutions available.
A machine’s spindle is one of the key links in the machining chain. It makes regular inspection and spindle maintenance critical to getting the most out of your equipment and maintain process efficiency.
Insufficient retention force of the spindle clamping mechanism could lead to reduced rigidity and vibrations, loss of machining quality, poor surface finish and shortened tool life. By ensuring that the retention force is at the correct level, cutting performance remains consistent, providing high-quality machining results.
