IBAG's high-speed spindle.

Ibag's High-Speed Spindles Range in Speed to 170,000 rpm
Westec 2019: Ibag North America will be displaying its range of high-speed spindles ranging from 16 to 360 mm with maximum speeds of 170,000 rpm for milling, cutting and grinding.

IBAG North America will display its series of high-speed spindles at IMTS 2018.

Speedy Spindles Suitable for Milling, Grinding
IMTS 2018: Ibag North America’s 16- to 360-mm high speed spindles spin as fast as 170,000 rpm.

Ibag Witte vacuum slot chucks

Vacuum Slot Chuck Configurable in Two Directions
Ibag North America offers the Witte modular vacuum slot chucks designed to provide expanded clamping surfaces to meet a wide range of application requirements.

Backworking Swiss-Type Spindle Promotes Surface Quality in Micro Milling
PMTS 2017: Ibag North America will feature the new 25-mm backworking spindle designed for Star Swiss-type machines that features 60,000 rpm with grease-packed lubrication and 80,000 rpm with oil-mist lubrication.

IBAG Micro LIne high-speed spindle

Compact, High-Speed Spindles Enable Ultra-Small Drilling
IBAG North America offers its Micro Line compact, high-speed spindles for Swiss-type turning machines.

Compact, High-Speed Spindles for Swiss Turning
IBAG’s expanded Micro Line compact, high-speed spindles are designed for Swiss turning.

Ibag backworking spindles

High-Torque Backworking Spindle for Swiss Applications
Ibag offers high-torque backworking spindles in 20-, 22-, and 25-mm sizes.

Micro Collets Increase Spindle Accuracy
Ibag North America’s micro collet system is designed to improve accuracies for precision milling and ultra-small drilling applications, such as in medical and other micro-manufacturing industries.

Spindles for Swiss Turning
The expanded Micro Line spindles for Swiss turning features 20-, 22- and 25-mm diameter models.

Compact, High Speed Spindles
The expanded Micro line of high speed spindles for Swiss turning now includes 20- and 22-mm diameters along with the 25-mm diameter model previously available.

Spindles for Swiss Turning
The company has added a 20-mm and 22-mm-diameter model to its Micro line of high-speed spindles for Swiss turning. Right-hand spindles are also available. These spindles eliminate secondary operations for Swiss-type lathes.

Process Monitoring System
Ibag’s Argotech PA-4 process analyzer provides continuous monitoring of repeating machine processes in real-time through pre-positioned sensors on the machine. The company says it is useful for the production of miniature parts. The analyzer detects a range of conditions that may result in poor quality production and unnecessary downtime.

Spindles Designed For Compact Tooling Areas
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.

Cold Cuts
What does a shop do with a workpiece that needs machining but can't be toe-clamped, bolted, chucked or held in a conventional vise? Securely holding many so called exotic materials - ceramics, carbides, glass, and other brittle blanks - is a challenge. The Ice Vice may offer a solution.

High-rpm machines

Standard Jobs Beyond Standard Speed
This job shop is defining the role of extremely high spindle speed in variable-volume, variable-part-number production.

The Fluid Transition
A watershed moment in spindle evolution? For the latest generation of high speed spindles used in milling, spindle makers look beyond traditional bearings.

Twin Spindle tool changer

Automatic Toolchanger For Auxiliary Spindles
For many shops, machine tools designed and dedicated to high speed milling are too expensive or too limited in productive capacity to justify. One approach around this constraint has been to mount an auxiliary spindle alongside the main spindle on a standard vertical machining center.

Yes, it IS a machine tool

It's A Machine Tool Robot
This machine has a dual identity. It looks like an industrial robot. In some applications, such as assembly, it is. However, put a spindle and cutting tool on the end of this five-axis machine and it becomes a machining and drilling center. The inherent stiffness of the machine's tripod design makes it accurate enough to machine aerospace and automotive applications.
