Spindle Repair and Rebuilds

This category includes tools and systems used in the repair or rebuilding of spindles, the rotating axis of a machine, and associated rotating parts. In the fabrication process, this includes belt-driven or electric high-speed spindles used in CNC machines, moulder spindles and arbors. This process includes disassembling, inspecting, testing and rebalancing all rotating equipment, along with testing spindle tool retention and run-off procedure. Systems used in repairing or rebuilding spindles may be used to grind bearings back into proper tolerance or replace bearings, adding or replacing hard chrome, or rebuilding drawbars back to standard clamping pressures.
