The demand for advancement of the accuracy and productivity in production systems continues to increase. At the heart of these production demands are high-speed machine tools and multi-tasking machine tools; at the heart of these machine tools are their spindles. These spindles continue to increase in variety, maximum speed, and number of spindles per machine; therefore, standardization and accurate and efficient tests of spindle performance have been demanded by the pursuit of productivity. Especially needful are tests at full operating speed rather than simple static measurements.

With these points as background, the ISO standard on “Geometric accuracy of axes of rotation (ISO230-7)” was released in 2006 as the universal performance test method for machine tool spindles to help comply with these ever increasing demands.

Given these current demands, the publication of Precision Spindle Metrology is very significant. This book will be...
