Spindle Services provides a comprehensive engineering and design service for machine designers

With over 50 years of experience and our vast engineering library we can ensure that by working with the customer, we find the best fit for the application.

Spindle Services Design Capability

Selection of the bearing package is made using High Precision angular contact's, double row cylindrical rollers, high contact angle thrust races, taper rollers or deep groove bearings - whichever is the correct choice to ensure the best bearing life. Working hand in hand with the bearing companies we can provide full verification of L10 bearing life calculations.

Lubrication is selected to suit the application using the latest in Synthetic high speed greases, oil/air for ultra high speed applications, recirculating oil for slower speed gearboxes, etc.

Where required, we can work within the confines of current application envelopes, taking the customer constraints and designing to suit.

Drawings are now carried out in 3D using Solidworks software. Finite Element Analysis can be carried out where required. Engineering information is rapidly communicated via E-Mail.

Spindle Services can incorporate all major tooling connection systems and have a license to produce the Komet ABS system. We can design in any proprietary tool retention and release system or incorporate our own designs.

Most tool clamping systems incorporate a power drawbar system, sometimes proprietary (O.T.T, BERG, ORTLIEB, ROHM, etc.) but also to our own design. We have designed hundreds of these systems utilising disc spring clamping, coil spring clamping or hydraulic clamping. Release cylinders - either hydraulic or Pneumatic - can be designed and incorporated as required.

We have a full range of Lathe spindle designs incorporating lots of different chucking options. Utilisation of Rotating hydraulic cylinders, drawbars, drawtubes, collet chucks, centre lathe chucks etc. is all covered within our library.
