BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling, Inc. (Elk Grove Village, IL) brings Air Power Spindle into the market to provide solutions to the endless challenges of micro machining with ultra high speed and precision. Air Power Spindle is an air-driven tool that can be used on existing machining centers to provide dramatic enhancements to surface finish quality, extended tool life, and reduced wear on high-speed spindles, and it offers maximum spindle speeds of 80,000 rpm. Used as an additional spindle on a normal machining center, Air Power Spindle eliminates the need for an expensive, high-speed machine. The new product minimizes thermal displacement in the Z-axis for top precision. When compared with a standard machining center spindle with up to .012mm of displacement, Air Power Spindle remains constant at less than .001mm. Combined with the high-accuracy Mega Micro collet chuck series, Air Power Spindle delivers exceptional dynamic run-out accuracy of less than .002mm, even at 80,000 rpm. The spindle produces very low vibration by perfect dynamic balance and low noise design (less than 65 dB). It is available in many dual contact spindle types—including BIG PLUS CAT, BIG PLUS BT and HSK to best fit your needs. www.bigkaiser.com
