Improve Spindle Performance with IBAG Machine Tool Chillers

IBAG spindle chillers are the perfect solution to keep your CNC machine running smoothly. Our machine tool chillers are engineered to provide reliable and efficient cooling for a wide range of spindle types and sizes, ensuring optimal performance and long tool life. With advanced features such as temperature control and automated monitoring, our chillers provide unparalleled quality and consistency to your operations.

How Do CNC Spindle Coolers Work?

Smaller high-speed spindles are typically air cooled. The power levels are relatively low and small bearings generate moderate levels of heat. Excess heat, created by motor losses and bearings, are generally dissipated by air fed through the spindle, air flow around the spindle housing, and heat absorbed by the metal spindle holding bracket.

Larger high-speed spindles, on the other hand, are typically cooled with an external fluid, such as an oil or water-based solution. The fluid is supplied by a chiller system. The chiller system includes a pump, storage tank, Freon-based refrigeration unit, and electrical controls. The main function of the chiller is to circulate the fluid through the spindle housing while maintaining the fluid temperature within one degree Centigrade. Electrical controls monitor flow, temperature, and alert the CNC to alarming conditions.

Heat is effectively removed from the motor and bearings, ensuring that all spindle parts are held at a constant operating temperature, resulting in top performance and longer spindle life.

Features of IBAG Spindle Chiller Units

Our machine tool cooling systems come equipped with a range of features to maintain the optimal temperature of the spindle and reduce thermal expansion. Features include:
  • High-performance pump: a powerful and reliable pump circulates coolant through the system
  • Storage tank: Durable tank stores the coolant, ensuring a continuous supply is available for the machine
  • Refrigeration unit: state-of-the-art refrigeration unit keeps the coolant at a stable, cool temperature
  • Electrical controls: easy-to-use controls allow operators to adjust temperature and flow rate as needed
