You may wonder what makes spindle bearings different. You may be well aware that low friction has been one of the most important concerns when it comes to good spindle performance. Most rolling bearings would boast of low-friction in the present times. Rest assured that a few newer technologies have provided the spindle bearings with a chance to deliver a new level of performance.
The primary advancement in spindle bearing technology would be the introduction of a hybrid spindle bearing. It would make the most of ceramic balls and steel rings. Such a variation of the spindle bearing represents a huge improvement in the performance for machine tool spindles.
