CNC spindle
« on: October 05, 2021, 12:29 PM »
Any recommendations on spindle for cnc.  Has to fit in a 80mm mount.  I have 220v in my shop.  Ideally I'd like to get an all in once package so including the vfd and any other accessories. 

Also I’ve noticed some companies like axiom include a spindle in which the cooling system is self contained. I tried looking but can’t seem to find an aftermarket spindle with that feature. Do they exist as an aftermarket part?


Thanks

I've been looking at these guys:  https://www.cncdepot.net/

Pricey but I'd have alot more confidence then a generic china spindle.

Oh definitely. Are their spindles, controllers, and all other bits made in USA?

The OP didn't say what CNC he wants to fit this spindle to but the
lowest price (without even looking to see what it would fit) is ~$3k.

Thanks for the suggestions. It will go ins onefinity cnc. Journeyman model.  I bought the 80mm mount as well for it but for now will probably just use the Makita trim router it was designed for till i get more familiar with the machine. Cncdepot spindles looks nice but way above my budget. Their least expensive model is almost as much as I paid for the cnc.

That's what I figured. I'm in the same boat, $3 to 4k is more than I want to spend for my CNC.

Ahh, for that CNC the trim router should be more than sufficient.  You're going to run into rigidity issues way before you need more spindle power.  A water cooled spindle is quieter, and last longer, but the trim routers are cheap enough that you can go through a couple of them for the price of a water cooled spindle. I imagine you'd outgrow that CNC at that point anyway.
 
Might have less run-out on the spindle, but the ebay/amazon spindles are all over the place and it probably doesn't matter much for the onefinitiy.

Yes, at $74 each I can burn up about 40 Makita routers before
I reach the price of their lowest price spindle.

I did contact them and for anyone wondering their spindles are
made in the USA. Some parts are sourced from outside the US.

FWIW...ran across this Stepcraft CNC spindle today. It's made in Germany, rated at 1000 watts and costs $500.

Actually this whole CNC package is a pretty nice value for the money especially as the tool change package is included. There's an unassembled package that's $500 less.

Yeah, I got a Mafell FM 1000 WS for my machine --- had to make a custom mounting plate (doesn't fit 80mm), but it's been working quite well, and the quick tool change is very nice.
