Industrial spindles are offered in several configurations and with pulleys for "V" belt or timing belt drive. They can be ordered with #1 Morse internal tapers or ready to accept an ER-16 collet. Some headstocks are available complete with DC motor and electronic speed control. These can be run on any current worldwide from 110VAC to 240VAC, 50 or 60 Hz.

Flat bottomed and round cartridge spindles are available with a choice of pulley and spindle nose tapers and threads (Click on image for a larger view).

Features

All Sherline Industrial spindles feature lifetime lubricated bearings with adjustable preload. The headstocks are made from extruded 6061-T6 aluminum and have a black anodized finish. Cartridge spindle bodies are turned from bar stock steel and have a black oxide finish. The steel spindle shaft has a .405" (10mm) hole through the center. The spindle nose has a 3/4-16 external thread and a #1 Morse internal taper. All spindles can also be ordered threaded to accept an ER-16 collet. All headstocks and spindles can be ordered with either a cogged timing belt pulley or a 2-step "V" belt pulley. Pulleys are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum. The timing belt pulley is a 1/5" pitch, 30-tooth, unflanged pulley designed to be used with XL-series rubber timing belts. (The drive pulley used with it should be flanged.) Headstock bearings are rated for a continuous speed up to approximately 3000 RPM with factory preload adjustment of .0002". Operating speeds up to 10,000 RPM are possible with a slightly looser preload setting of .0003".

Specifications

Runout at spindle nose: .0005" or less
End play at factory preload setting: .0002" (preload is adjustable)
