IBAG North America has added a rotary coupling system that allows the use of its Micro Line high speed spindles in turret-style machines. The rotary coupling provides support for all electrical and pneumatic requirements for the high speed spindles, with models available to support two or four spindles. Built with an IP67 rating, the rotary coupling uses positive air over-pressure to prevent any coolant or chip contamination and can rotate up to a maximum speed of 500 rpm. The pneumatic supply within the coupling also provides air seal to the spindles. The rotary coupling is mounted to the CNC lathe turret face. An anti-rotation shaft prevents the coupling from rotating as the turret spins.

Any Micro Line spindle can be used with the coupling, providing speeds as high as 100,000 rpm for micro-milling and small-diameter drilling applications. Ideal for medical machining on Swiss-type lathes, custom spindle mounting brackets can be used to allow cross-drilling or milling at unique angles.
