Machine tools are becoming more compact, but the requirements are not decreasing, as Meyrat maintains. Indeed, the opposite is said to be the case. In many automatic lathes, the standard bores for tool holders are 16 mm in diameter and the space available in the length is very limited. Given these circumstances, the Biel-based company will be highlighting what it claims is the shortest high-frequency compact spindle on the market with only 80 mm (MHF-16 with a speed of 80,000 rpm). It is available with axial, radial or frontal connections and in two lengths. As a result, the manufacturers insist, it can adapt to all production methods currently on the market.
