Spindle Measurement

Join our Spindle Metrology LinkedIn Group to discuss spindle measurement and performance.

Two Spindle Measurement Products

Find errors in the point of machining that lead to machine downtime and unnecessary scrap.

Measure machine tool spindles at full operating speeds and know how the point of machining changes with changes in temperature, speed, and environment. Make informed decisions about spindle rebuilds, machine acceptance, job assignments, and perform predictive and preventive maintenance.
