Rough machining with a 10 mm cutter in steel and wear-free, ultra-precise and stable high-speed machining at 60.000 rpm would save the machine user an aditional machine for the creation of precision molds and would guarantee optical surface finish at the same time. With our tool spindle model UASD-H40 Levicron have achieved this goal and can now provide a unique true full-range aerostatic CNC tool spindle with HSK-E40 tool clamping and speeds of up to 60.000 rpm.
The patented high-pressure aerostatic bearing system generates a radial and axial load capacity at the tool of up to 7.000 N / 1.400 lbs, but on the other hand also the energy saving, the speed and the ultra-precision operation of our ASD-H25/A with HSK-E25 tool interface. Compared to hydrostatic tool spindles our UASD-H40 offers not only comparable load capacities at 50% less energy costs, remarkably cost savings for peripherals and 50% more spindle speed, but because of the much more simple sealing technology also a very compact and easy to maintain spindle design.
It was designed into a standard size steel housing with 120 mm in diameters, and together with the new in-house developped spring-less automatic HSK-E40 tool interface and the high-pressure shaft rotary feedthrough capable of leading any gas or fluid at -1 to 80 bar pressure to the tool tip our UASD-H40 represents the first true full-range aerostatic CNC tool spindle with HSK-E40 tool interface and speeds of up to 60.000 rpm.
