IBAG offers a wide range of standard spindles and options, and typically one will satisfy most applications. However, if a unique application requires a special design, IBAG can usually satisfy that demand. From custom motor specifications to special spindle housing designs, IBAG engineering can find a solution for your specific requirements.
 
For small spindles, IBAG has produced a variety of products to fit specific Swiss style CNC lathes, including Star CNC, Tornos, Tsugami, and Citizen. The spindle housing is produced to fit into existing tool blocks, making installation quick, easy, and accurate. In addition, standard CNC interface options have been developed so spindle control by the CNC is simple and reliable.
 
Due to strong demand, turn-key conversion packages are available for Haas vertical machining centers. The package includes the 30K IBAG spindle, drive, chiller, electrical controls, and electrical and mechanical conversion parts required. Installation requires only two days.
 
Many medium IBAG spindles have been developed for special applications, including glass grinding, deep hole drilling, CBN wheel dressing, and composite routing. In some of these projects, it was necessary to produce the spindle parts from stainless steel, or provide a resistant coating to protect the spindle housing from extreme corrosion.
 
Large IBAG spindle specials include spindles capable of both turning and milling. A locking gear is positioned within the spindle housing that holds the shaft rigidly for turning operations. With the gear released, the spindle shaft can rotate at high speed to mill and drill.
 
Many IBAG spindles have been developed for the large, 5-Axis machine market. These spindles offer a wide variety of speeds, tooling and power options, and fit into the mechanical holding bracket specified by the machine tool OEM.
 
With over 75 years of spindle design experience, IBAG is the ideal partner for the development of a special high speed spindle for your application. Contact us today with your requirements, and we will advise if a technical solution is feasible.
