24000 RPM spindle for CNC Mill

by John


The mill quill and spindle is on the right hand side, with a 1 inch cutter insitu. The high speed spindle and its VSD controller is on the left hand side. Of course the cutter on the rhs will be removed when an engraving cutter is installed in the high speed spindle. The wiring hook ups, and coolant pump and lines are yet to be installed It does not look much but it took me a whole day.  The setup is quite rigid.

Today I spent a few more hours setting up the high speed spindle on my CNC mill.

I will post a video when i am doing some label engraving.
