Liquid Cooled Spindle
The difference between the noise produced by a router and the sound produced by this spindle has to be experienced. If you haven't seen and heard the difference in person then please watch this video.
When you see our 220V Liquid Cooled Spindle in action you'll be impressed with how quiet it is. While reducing the level of noise pollution in your shop is one of this spindles greatest strengths, it's not the only benefit it provides.
Listed below are six more reasons you may want to consider a 220V Liquid Cooled Spindle for your Legacy CNC system.
Power: A 220V 3HP spindle provides consistent torque and horse power that a 110 VAC router just can't compete with, resulting in increased productivity.
Efficiency: While producing more power than a router, this 220V spindle draws less current, lowering your operating costs and helping to create a greener planet.
NOTE: While this spindle operates on three phase power for greater torque and efficiency, it only requires a single phase 220VAC power source.
Longevity: Routers were never designed for extended run times while this spindle is liquid cooled and designed with precision bearings to run constantly for extended periods of time.
The precision bearings, balanced collet nut and ER20 collets will minimize run-out resulting in superior performance.
Ultimate Tool Compatibility: Unlike a router, this spindles uses ER20 collets which come in both metric and imperial sizes from 1mm to 1/2". You'll be able to securely and safely mount all your cutting tools without the need for spacers or reducers.
Spindle RPM: While a router's RPM is adjusted manually, a spindle's RPM is controlled by the CNC system and can be adjusted via the CNC control software. It can even be adjusted during milling operations. The spindle also has a greater programmable RPM (speed) range - 3,000 to 24,000 RPM. The RPM range of a spindle allows you to work with a broader range of materials i.e. plastics, or use a sanding mop to sand a turned spindle on the CNC machine.
