Westwind Exhibit at Intermold Japan

Westwind Air Bearings K.K. is proud to announce their participation for the first time ever at the Intermold Show 2005, to be held from 14th to 16th April 2005, at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center - Tokyo Big Sight, Japan.

Located in Booth #564, Westwind Air Bearings will be displaying a collection of quality air bearing spindles for high precision machining, light milling, drilling, grinding and routing, including outline new upgraded turbine air spindle and BT shanked turbine spindle.

As a major OEM supplier for many years, Westwind’s proven spindle designs have been successful even in the harshest of manufacturing environments around the world, with speeds ranging from 500 rpm to 180,000 rpm.  Air bearing spindles solve many of the problems experienced by companies using traditional bearing systems, offering ultra smooth high speed rotation for a superior finish and maximum productivity, and very low vibration and runout for extended life.

Itsuro Ishii, General Manager Sales & Marketing, Westwind Air Bearings K.K., said: “Westwind offers new solutions by working closely with clients on customised designs.  We are delighted to exhibit at Intermold for the first time, and greatly look forward to displaying our latest precision machining spindles.  We would be happy to speak to anyone who would like the opportunity to discuss how air bearings could enhance their productivity.”
