If you are looking for product quality improvements that only an ultraprecision tooling spindle can provide, and also require the robustness of an industrial grade design, Precitech says the ASD-H25 and ASD-Cx high-speed air-bearing ultraprecision tooling spindles by Levicron are precisely what you need.
These spindles are available in two configurations: ASD-Cx features a pneumatically operated collet system, and, the ASD-H25 features an industry standard, HSK25 interface, enabling the use of an off-the-shelf ultraprecision solution for quick tool changes, saving time and money.
Available in 60,000- and 80,000-rpm models, Levicron spindles permit fast manufacturing and a high levels of quality. The low error motions, long and light shaft design, thermal stability, accurate quick tool changes, and robust bearing system allow for the quick chip-to-chip time and material-removal rates required by highly productive industrial processes.
