A diamond turning spindle is a precision motorised spindle used in diamond turning processes to manufacture high-precision optical components, moulds, and other parts requiring extremely tight tolerances and surface finishes. It combines the capabilities of diamond cutting tools with air-bearing technology to achieve exceptional accuracy and surface quality.
Our diamond turning spindles offer several advantages, including exceptional precision, low motion error (NRRO), superior surface finish, reduced tool wear, minimised friction and heat generation, extended spindle lifespan, and enhanced stability during machining. These spindles excel at achieving sub-micron level tolerances and producing high-quality optical components.
Diamond turning spindles can be used to machine a wide range of materials, including metals (such as aluminum, copper, and stainless steel), plastics, optical materials (like glass and crystals), and other engineering materials requiring high precision and surface quality.
Typically, smaller spindles are C. 12,000 - 15,000 rpm and are water cooled. Larger diamond turning spindles are 3,000-8,000 rpm, also water cooled.
