Spindle Liners: Steel or Urethane
Saturday, November 5, 2016

In the search for the most effective spindle liners, the first decision to be made is the material of liner: steel or urethane.

Urethane liners are perfect for stock that is a special shape, as the liners can be custom molded. They are also a good alternative to steel liners if metal to metal contact is a concern. However, the malleability of urethane liners comes at cost. Urethane liners are softer, so metal chips can become more easily embedded into them. Not only will this shorten the lifespan of the liner, it can cause much more damage than the smooth metal surface of a steel liner. The elasticity of urethane liners can also increase the vibration in the machine.

Steel liners, on the other hand, will decrease noise and vibration. They are much less susceptible to scratches and deformation, which means they outlast most urethane liners. In addition, only metal liners can increase efficiency by extending the bar length capacity of the lathe. Finally, contrary to popular belief, steel liners are comparable to urethane not on in weight, but also in price.

The JF Berns Company manufactures both steel and hybrid urethane liners, so we will help you select the liner that best suits your needs, not our inventory. Contact us today to get started.
