 Machine Tool Spindle Drives - two speed-Image

The MSD is excellent for conventional design solutions where the motor and gearbox are mounted outside of the headstock and the spindle is driven by belts silent chain or gearing.

The MSD Range consists of:

  • 3 different sizes
  • Two ratios 1:1 and 3.8:1 or 4.9:1
  • Power up to 225 HP @ 1500 RPM
  • Output torque up to 3241 Lb.Ft. (4400 NM)
  • Input speeds up to 7000 RPM
  • Speed change actuation by 24V DC motor, pneumatic or hydraulic actuator
  • Ratio Controlled by integrated proximity switches
  • Efficiency of 97%
  • Quiet operation
  • Compact planetary design
  • Finned aluminum housing for maximum heat dissipation
  • Input flanges accommodate most standard spindle drive motors
  • Large output bearing capacity to accept radial loads from belt drives
