Dynomax offers a high speed, robotic, motorized spindle designed for finishing operations in the medical, dental, automotive, ceramic, glass, consumer products and other high-precision industries. The compact 1860 model features a high-torque, 2.5-hp motor available at optional maximum speeds of 30,000, 40,000 or 60,000 rpm to increase accuracy and productivity.
The 12-lb (5.5-kg) spindle features a small profile and is suitable for use in tight areas. It is designed to enable a wider selection of robots, which can potentially reduce robotic costs, the company says. The spindle is suited for a variety of robotic applications, including deburring, polishing and light machining of products such as dentures, prosthetics, glass, pottery, wood working or industrial ceramics.
The spindles are equipped with standard collet toolholders and an air-purge bearing protection system that increases spindle life and reduces the probability of spindle breakdown, the company says. They can be air or liquid cooled, and they feature several mounting options for use in a veriety of configurations and applications.
