Suhner Industrial Products Corp., automation division introduces the BEX8, a high-speed machining block spindle capable of maintaining rigidity, precision, and reliable performance at extremely high-speed operations — up to 25,000 rpm. 

The BEX8 is a smaller version of the popular Suhner BEX15, but weighs only 33 pounds and features the ability to mount directly onto robotic arms for fully automated machining operations in high-speed, high-production departments in automotive, appliance, off-highway, and other industries. 

The standard motor supplied is either 0.37kW or 0.75kW and the standard toolholder supplied is ER20. 

This new machining spindle from Suhner adapts to the UA15 slide unit via the integral mounting supports. Spindle concentricity is better than 0.01mm.
