Greater sustainability thanks to our spindle bearing mounting
If surface quality and workpiece accuracy decreases, or if noise/heat is being generated, this will usually be the result of the spindle bearings having suffered gradual wear and tear. This wear and tear can be caused by a number of reasons, such as mechanical overload during processing, lubrication issues, or simply age related wear and tear in relation to the spindle bearings. In these cases, the original condition can be restored by replacing the bearings.
As problems such as these become apparent and detectable at an early stage, you can react and initiate the steps needed to rectify the issue in good time – and all while the spindle is still running. We will procure the new spindle bearings or reserve them for you until the installation date. Your machine is thus only idle for as long as it takes to repair the spindle. Not a minute longer – and at a time that suits you best.
Of course, no one can be certain how long a spindle will last. But despite this, it still makes economic sense in many cases to replace the spindle’s bearings as a precautionary measure; especially when doing so helps you avoid unscheduled downtime and expensive consequential damage to the spindle and the machine. These costs are usually many times higher than the costs associated with replacing your spindle’s bearings. By conducting regular, preventative inspections of the spindle, we can detect gradual wear and tear of the spindle bearings in good time.
Our tip: Keep production running with our spindle bearing mounting service and ensure the quality of your workpieces in doing so. Avoid rejects, meet deadlines and protect yourself from nasty and expensive surprises. Don’t delay – arrange an appointment with one of our spindle experts now.
