VRT High Speed Spindles
Bryan Machine manufactures VRT High Speed Spindles, also known as Spindle Speeders, and Turbine Spindles. If you are tired of expensive high-speed machines that don’t have the torque for low-speed work you have come to the right place. Now you can have both. When interfaced with your control, these High Speed Spindles can be used like any other tool in your tool changer, completely unattended. You don’t even have to buy a Spindle for each speed that you need to run. Our High Speed Spindles have a regulated variable speed from 15,000 to 40,000 rpm. The Turbine Spindles have low noise and low air consumption (.5 hp at 20,000 rpm). There are no gears, veins, or heat; just low maintenance and high-speed power.
- Turn on & off with a command in your program (on machines equipped with a user M code for interfacing).
- Along with your machine controlled auto coupler, this Turbine Spindle can be used like any other tool in your tool changer.
- Use your CNC machine and Turbine Spindle for engraving, jig grinding, profile grinding, high speed machining & graphite machining.
- Other mounting solutions available for our High Speed Spindles – Straight Shank, BT Taper, Cat 40 and Cat 50.

The VRT is a compressed air turbine with an internal regulator, meaning it works to maintain the same speed in varying loads. The regulator is operator adjustable from the 15,000 to 40,000 rpm range. When used in a CNC machine with the auto coupler, it can be used like any other tool in a tool changer for unattended operation. So it is completely tool changeable.
The ACH125C is the auto coupler and is what allows completely unattended operation for the VRT. Originally designed for Haas VMC it is also adaptabe to most CNC machines, including lathes and grinders. We can adapt the coupler to virtually any machine.
When not in use, both sides of the AC are closed to prevent coolant and debris from entering. When interfaced to the CNC control a simple command engages the AC and starts the VRT.
The NT in (VRTNTMT) is a “no tools” speed adjustment, meaning the tool and collet do not have to be removed to change the speed. The pushing of a button and turning the spindle will increase or decrease speed.
