 SPND-X1-XY-0.5HP - Drill/Reamer Spindle

Single precision spindle with manual collet for 1/2" (50mm) arbors, drill, or reamer bits driven by 1/2HP electric motor. XY lateral compliance with 1" (25mm) travel in all directions allows spindle to float with part features like holes during drilling or reaming operations. Entire assembly comes mounted on a pedestal with dust guards and scoop.

  • Power: 1/2HP. Speed range: 0-3450 with VFD
  • Compliance travel: +/-1" (+/-25mm) in X and Y plane
  • Pneumatically lockable to center position
  • Standard manual 1/2" (12.5mm) collet - other sizes available
  • Optional fully plumbed and wired ready for use
  • Available controls are: discrete I/O, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, Devicenet

 SPND-20140226-100 - Dual Part Gripping Spindle

Spindle with dual part grippers and continuous reversible rotation with speed control for dry and wet applications. Mounted on linear slide with pneumatic extend/retract motion. Feed-through devices connect electrical sensor signals and compressed air to part grippers thus allowing continuous rotation. Servo motor with hall sensor feedback is used for closed loop speed control.

  • Rated torque: 15.9 lbs-in
  • Standard speed range: 4-20 RPM with drive
  • Pneumatically controlled linear slide travel: 3" (75mm)
  • Two 3-jaw grippers with 0.157" (4mm) travel of each jaw
  • Max workpiece weight: 1.3 lbs (0.6kg)
  • Optional fully plumbed and wired ready for use
  • Available controls are: discrete I/O, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, Devicenet
  • Sensors for grippers open and close, slide extended and retracted
  • Dry or wet applications

 SPND-20121030-001 - Dual Abrasive Spindle

Dual precision spindles for abrasive wheels mounted on 3/8" or 10mm arbors. This spindle assembly is suitable for operating in wet environment/application. The spindles are driven by electric servo motor with feedback for precise reversible speed control. Entire mechanism can be standalone or mounted on linear ballscrew slide where abrasives can be positioned for process and retracted when done. ACT supplies Allen Bradley servo motors for slide positioning but customer motor choice can also be accommodated.

  • Rated torque: 11.5 lbs-in (1.3 Nm)
  • Standard speed range: 0-5000 RPM with drive
  • Ballscrew linear slide travel: 0.75" (19mm)
  • Each spindle with manual collet
  • Standard collet sizes are 3/8" or 10mm
  • Other collet sizes available
  • Optional fully plumbed and wired ready for use
  • Available controls are: discrete I/O, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, Devicenet
  • Sensors for slide home and over travel limits
  • Dry or wet applications

 SPND-20140505-200 - Four Spindle Assembly

Four abrasive wheel spindles assembly made of 2 independent dual spindles SPND-20121030-001 mounted opposite to each other. Two parts at the same time can be positioned between the dual spindles and processed by rotating the parts and extending abrasive spindles from both sides. Each dual spindle is precision made for abrasive wheels mounted on 3/8" or 10mm arbors. This spindle assembly is suitable for operating in wet environment/application. The spindles are driven by electric servo motor with feedback for precise reversible speed control. Entire mechanism can be standalone or mounted on linear ballscrew slide where abrasives can be positioned for process and retracted when done. ACT supplies Allen Bradley servo motors for slide positioning but customer motor choice can also be accommodated.

  • Each dual spindle specifications are as follows
  • Rated torque: 11.5 lbs-in (1.3 Nm)
  • Standard speed range: 0-5000 RPM with drive
  • Ballscrew linear slide travel: 0.75" (19mm)
  • Each spindle with manual collet
  • Standard collet sizes are 3/8" or 10mm
  • Other collet sizes available
  • Optional fully plumbed and wired ready for use
  • Available controls are: discrete I/O, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, Devicenet
  • Sensors for slide home and overtravel limits
  • Dry or wet applications

 SPND-14273-8200-000 - Six Spindle Assembly

Six spindle station with manual collets driven by single servo motor designed and built originally to power 6 abrasive brushes for deburring of up to 6 parts at once. Servo motor with drive provides precise reversible speed control of the spindles. Included in the assembly are sensors for abrasive media arbors and coolant spray nozzles at each spindle. There are no compliance devices. Spindle comes with mounting pedestal.

  • Rated torque: 11.5 lbs-in (1.3 Nm)
  • Standard speed range: 0-1250 RPM with drive
  • Each spindle with manual collet
  • Standard collet sizes are 1/8-3/8" or 4-10mm
  • Optional fully plumbed and wired ready for use
  • Available controls are: discrete I/O, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, Devicenet
  • Sensors for abrasive arbor present at each spindle
  • Coolant spray nozzle at each spindle
  • Dry or wet applications.
