What sort of electric motor is fitted inside the air bearing spindle?

Most Westwind air bearing spindles are fitted with integrated asynchronous AC squirrel-cage electric motors. However, some more specialized spindles, especially for advanced material processing applications, are fitted with integrated brushless DC motors.  Currently, all Westwind atomizer spindles are driven by integrated air turbine motors.
