Start of Development: 2011
Gal-Way was established in 2011 by a number of partners under the leadership of Yehezkel Adin and Eyal Milman. The technology is founded on years of research experience and on the development and manufacturing of sophisticated mechanical devices specializing in precision machining.
Spindles are a key component in standard machining devices, milling machines and lathes. Gal-Way recognized the need for the serial production of an improved spindle. Most machining devices are equipped with spindles operating at up to 12,000 rpm. However, using a cutting tool with a small radius (under 5 mm) makes it is necessary to use a spindle that rotates at a higher speed of over 30,000 rpm. Existing solutions for increasing speed (mechanical, pneumatic or electric) are costly.
They require substantial maintenance, and they have various other limitations.
Gal-Way’s team of engineers took on this challenge. Thanks to the support of the Israel Innovation Authority, the company was able to conduct continuous development operations and to arrive at the required product, which was named Top-Spin.
Top-Spin is a groundbreaking patented spindle. It can reach a maximum speed of 50,000 rpm. This speed boosts the capability of the machining devices, milling machines, and lathes equipped with the innovative spindle. It is operated by highly pressurized cooling liquid facilitating its use in any machining site that is equipped with cooling through the spindle.
The state-of-the-art spindle is particularly efficient due to its compact dimensions, its Plug & Play installation, its remarkable performance, and its exhibiting of high axial hardness without requirement for maintenance. Its demonstrates significant
cost-effectiveness, saving up to 75 percent of operation time.
The Top-Spin spindle was first marketed in early 2017. It has already been taken up by Ferrari, which uses it to manufacture its Formula One vehicles, and by motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. The spindle has recently begun serial production, and the company is already working on R&D for its future generation of products. The aim: making Gal-Way the standard selection for machining devices.
