Westwind is the world leader in the supply of air bearing driller/router spindles. These spindles are ideal for applications involving a combination of both three board high routing and drilling.
The industry standard M320 has a powerful AC motor with a maximum speed of 80,000 rpm, ideal for the smallest diameter of routing cutters. Westwind now also supplies the D1331-49 driller/router spindle with a higher maximum speed of 125,000 rpm. The higher speed allows this product to be used for smaller diameter hole drilling whist retaining the ruggedness for three board high routing.
Air bearing advantages:
Higher speed capability & long life
