Creating a new machining revenue stream!

 Colibri’s new Typhoon high-speed spindle easily connects to a standard CNC’s existing spindle, reaches speeds of up to 50,000 RPM, and reduces machining cycle time by up to 80 per cent when working with small diameter tools
Colibri Spindles believes if you already run milling CNC machines with coolant through the spindle with a minimal coolant pressure of 20 bar, your shop can simply and confidently develop a new revenue stream by taking on high-speed machining jobs.
Colibri’s new Typhoon high-speed spindle easily connects to a standard CNC’s existing spindle, reaches speeds of up to 50,000 RPM, and reduces machining cycle time by up to 80 per cent when working with small diameter tools. “We have the data from tests on a range of applications using different materials that demonstrate the Typhoon’s superb performance,” informed Baruch Books, Deputy CEO and VP Marketing & Sale at Colibri Spindles Ltd.
As machining professionals are well aware, many semi-finishing and finishing operations require small diameter tools in order to get the precise cuts and surface quality needed. If, in the past, your shop was carrying out these operations on a standard machine, you already know that you could have benefitted from a high-speed machine. “Not only do the small diameter tools used in these operations require high speed, but obviously higher RPM machining drastically cuts cycle time and increases productivity, and in the process yields superior results,” Mr Books adds.
Using the Typhoon high-speed spindle, a shop can actively pursue jobs that need high-speed machining. “Just a small investment leads to a new avenue through which new kinds of service to existing and new customers can be provided. ROI is seen very quickly,” Mr Books assures.
How the Typhoon work and what does makes it so special? Typhoon is a solo playerUnlike any other auxiliary high-speed spindle, the Typhoon’s speed is driven by the force of the CNC’s coolant. So, no other attachments such as compressed air or an external electrical controller are needed.
Attach and go! The Typhoon’s design and compact size allows it to be stored in the ATC from where it is called by the NC program, as if it were another cutting tool.
Precision is Typhoon’s middle nameThe Typhoon maintains optimal cutting speed and accurate table feed. Its mechanical integrity accounts for stability during machining – it’s run out is only a few microns, which translates into cutting accuracy. 
Productivity, savings and revenueTyphoon protects cutting tools and extends their working life; the coolant used in the process keeps tools cool and clears chips from the table, avoiding broken edges – improved quality results.
FlexibilityTyphoon allows being flexible in two major ways. One, it is easy and simple to install and is stored in the ATC as any other tool and allows the flexibility of transferring from one application to another. The other point is it saves buying a new HSM machine that limits you to working with certain application only.
Productivity goes up to 80 per cent, and sometimes even more, since the time once spent on semi-finishing and finishing operations is cut away. A shop can simply take on more work to fill that freed-up time.
