Platinum Tooling, the importer of live tools, angle heads, marking tools, Swiss tools and multiple spindle tools manufactured by various global suppliers, is now importing Henninger Speed Increasers for North America. The announcement was made by company president, Preben Hansen, at headquarters in Prospect Heights, Illinois, near Chicago.
Henninger is a manufacturer of specialized equipment and precision machine tool accessories. Their speed increasers help maximize productivity by achieving a higher spindle rpm that is required for certain applications in today’s marketplace. Small diameter tools require rpms that are sometimes not possible to reach with existing machine tools. In addition, they allow for less wear and tear on the machine’s spindle when it is not required to run at its maximum rpm.
Mechanical speeders are available with up to a 1:8 gear ratio and a maximum speed of 50,000 rpm. Air speeders can run continuously at up to 80,000 rpm and high frequency motor spindles can maintain up to 80,000 rpm with high torque, and have variable speed options.
Many of the speeders have automatic tool change capabilities and are modular in design to offer the customer greater flexibility.
Henninger also manufactures custom angle heads, live centers, face drivers, and live chucks. In addition, Henninger is the premier manufacturer for center grinding machines.
