Rethinking Machine Tool Spindles
Through extensive research involving more than 4,000 individual tests, this company determined that unequal air pressure - caused by the location of ports around the circumference of a spindle's seals - creates adjacent zones of high and low pressure inside the seal.

Spindle Retrofit Helps Rapid Prototyping Company Keep VMCs Running
One critical aspect of the rapid prototyping business is turnaround time--the time it takes to produce a prototype from a customer design. Reliability of machine tools is critical in this competitive business.

New Seal Design Protects Machine Tools Spindles
Effectively protecting machine tool spindles--which means primarily the spindle bearings that support the shaft--from contamination by coolant, moisture and chips has challenged some of the best and brightest engineering minds.

High Speed Machining: Aerospace -- Boeing's One Part Harmony
Faster, lighter cuts can let one solid part replace an assembly of hundreds of components. Better manufacturing and a better airplane both result. But before Boeing could realize these benefits, a more finely tuned process was needed.
