Servo Spindle Motors Overview
Industry Standard BT Toolholder
Air pressure actuated, industry standard BT-style toolholders are our most popular tool changing option. Our spindles accept either the BT30 or the larger BT40 toolholder depending on the motor size. BT style toolholders are readily available from a variety of tooling suppliers in various lengths and configurations. They provide exceptional holding torque and tool retention and can accomodate a wide range of tool diameters. This exceptional performance and flexiblity make them the go-to choice for most any application.
Our Manual Collet option uses a standard ER style collet and nut. This simple, low-cost solution is ideal for grinding, brush finishing or other applications where media changes are required but not frequent enough to justify full, robotic quick change technology. ER collets are readily available from many suppliers in a variety of size options to accomodate most any tool.
