During the technological development, some equipments remain mostly the first day's design besides most of others change repeatedly. CNC Milling machines' spindle design is one of these which remains mostly the same. With the existing design, in order to obtain the desired torque for metal milling process, the body of the spindle is made huge and heavy which causes the whole machine body to be constructed huge and heavy.
