Platinum Tooling now imports Henninger speed increasers. The speed increasers help to maximize productivity by achieving a higher spindle speed that is required for certain applications. Small diameter tools require speeds that are difficult to reach with existing machine tools, according to the company. In addition, they enable less wear and tear on the machine’s spindle when it is not required to run at its maximum speed.

Mechanical speeders are available with as much as a 1-to-8 gear ratio and a speed as fast as 50,000-rpm. Air speeders run continuously as fast as 80,000 rpm and high-frequency motor spindles maintain speed as fast as 80,000-rpm with high torque and have variable speed options. Many of the speeders have automatic tool change capabilities and are modular in design to offer customers flexibility.
