With all spindle rebuild projects, we begin with an initial electrical and mechanical inspection of the head, utilising unobtrusive methods to assess the condition of the unit.
If necessary, the unit will then be disassembled to a component level, and all items are inspected for damage to determine which parts may need to be repaired or replaced.
We will then compile a report on our findings, incorporating this information into a quote for your approval.
Once the quote has been approved and the work authorised, we will begin to rebuild the unit, starting with existing parts that remain in working order. Where these are deemed to be unusable, we will install new, high-quality parts to replace them. When specialist parts are required, or in extreme cases, we can manufacture replacement parts in our own engineering workshop.
All units are assembled and tested on our test rig, where we can run spindles of various voltages and frequencies, up to a maximum of 30,000 rpm. We complete tests over a 12-hour period and will rebalance the machine where necessary, as well as checking temperature, shaft orientation and position, and all technical and operational parameters.
