A spindle is a mechanical device installed on a machine tool and on which a chuck can be mounted in order to clamp and hold any piece that needs processing but also to drag a tool or piece in rotation in order to be able to perform a certain type of processing.
In mechanical processing, the spindle is a central component in machines such as the lathe, the milling machine, the grinding machine and the grinder.
The term spindle is often also used as a synonym for self-centering. The types of chucks are different and can be with three, four or six jaws clamping. The 4-jaw self-centering chucks are used for fixing circular, irregular or polygonal section pieces with a number of sides divisible by 4. There are also non self-centering chucks in which each jaw has an independent movement.
At CpGrinding we construct spindles for machine tools, high-speed drilling centers and electrospindle shafts. We design and manufacture the spindles internally using only the most modern technologies and selected materials.
