OKK HP 5005
The owners of this spindle started to repair the spindle by himself and quickly abandoned that thought as it did not go smoothly for them. We needed to re-qualify a few areas of the shaft and housing caused by improper dis-assembly techniques. We were able to salvage the spindle and within 5 days our customer was up and running. They have determined that Northland Tool & Electronics will be their rebuilder for any spindles in the future.
OKK VP60 BIG PLUS taper repair
The incorrect tool was inserted during tool change causing the spindle to crash. This caused the tool to spin in the taper shearing off one integral drive dog and severely damaging the second. The BIG PLUS taper and face were also severely damaged. We were able to repair the drive dogs, taper and face in our grinding/machining departments using certified BIG PLUS gauging. We then rebuilt the spindle to strict BIG PLUS specifications. Our repair provided our customer with a spindle that meets or exceeds OEM specifications for considerably less money than their only other option of an OEM replacement spindle. Our expedited service reduced machine downtime by 16 weeks over the OEM option.
