The 20- and 22-mm spindles from the company’s expanded “Micro Line” complement its existing line of 25-mm-diameter spindles, offering high speed precision milling and drilling capabilities for smaller Swiss turning equipment. Right-hand spindles are also available. These spindles are said to eliminate secondary operations for Swiss-type lathes. They use synchronous, DC-motor technology and operate as fast as 100,000 rpm with 260 watts continuous power and high torque.
The spindles are suited for machining applications involving micro-milling and drilling tools, as well as for applications such as engraving and fine milling. They feature high rigidity and ultra precision (less than 2-µ runout) to enhance surface quality and machining accuracy. Model lengths are suited for compact tooling areas. In addition, for turning center users, the company offers a ready-to-install kit that includes the spindle and drive; all electrical and pneumatic lines; and optional spindle mounting blocks.
