Tips to Extend Spindle Life

Ed Zitney, Jr. of SKF Machine Tool Services explores some of the proactive tricks of the trade that can go a long way toward contributing to the health of a spindle.


Edward Zitney, Jr.SKF Machine Tool Services “A typical vertical machining center features a main housing to fit the spindle cartridge. This housing should be scrutinized regularly for signs of trouble. The inner diameter should be clean without signs of scoring or serious wear and the faces should not exhibit damage, nicks, or dings. Also, the main housing to the machine should always be properly aligned; otherwise, spindle problems attributed to misalignment could develop.”
Even though a machine tool spindle is a high-precision machine component, more often than not it is handled carelessly, forced to perform well beyond design limitations, or otherwise abused to the breaking point. Ed Zitney of SKF Machine Tool Services shows how proper care and maintenance can make all the difference in both its operation and longevity in service.
