Westwind air bearing spindles are used in applications requiring high speed, precision motion, long lifetime or oil-free operation. They prove successful in the harshest of manufacturing environments around the world, providing significant advantages over conventional bearing systems for greater productivity and higher quality.
Westwind spindles use non-contacting air bearing technology. With almost frictionless motion, Westwind spindles make the difference in PCB manufacturing, automotive coating, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, and many other markets where performance needs are outside the scope of conventional bearing technology.
Air bearing benefits include high precision, high integrity design solutions, high rotational speed, consistent performance, long life, low vibration, minimal maintenance, and cleanliness.
