About Our Company
NTE provides over 30 years of comprehensive experience and over one hundred years of combined technician knowledge. We have rebuilt machine tool spindles of every type including machining centers, grinders, printed circuit board, and woodworking - from 120,000-rpm grinding spindles to 2,500-pound milling spindles. This solid foundation of service, coupled with a new management that is dedicated to integrity and a rigid adherence to a well-defined code of ethics, is used as the base to provide to you the most professional and comprehensive repairs, thereby minimizing your machine downtime, enhancing machine performance, and increasing your profitability.
One of the most important steps in the rebuilding process is the breakdown and evaluation of the spindle. This is the phase where the cause of failure is determined. NTE pays particular attention to this function so we can help you identify problems early and work with you to find effective solutions. Have you ever had a problem spindle? Did your spindle run great for years but now it has inadequate performance after it has been serviced? More than likely something that is affecting its operation has been overlooked. NTE’s breakdown and evaluation process can help identify these problems before they wind up back in your machine and on your production floor.
Every customer is important to NTE. We have a professional sales and technical staff to assist you with your individual spindle needs. Our goal is to find solutions to your spindle problems. This may involve a conversation or on-site visit from one of our sales engineers to explore solutions to your machine problems.
Precision In House Grinding
NTE has comprehensive, in-house OD and ID grinding capabilities that are used specifically to bring parts back to OEM specifications. This allows NTE to maintain tolerances up to .00005” along with providing for shorter turnaround times and greater control over our repair processes.
When you receive your spindle back from NTE, not only will you get the highest quality spindle repair, you will also receive a detailed report that includes run-out measurements, temperature readings, vibration analysis, break-in procedures, and other pertinent information.
Spindle Support Programs
NTE has several unique and proprietary programs for customer support. You are provided with operational cost savings, extended spindle life, decreased machine down time, and, as a result, increased productivity. NTE goes far beyond repairing your spindle. Our support includes spindle care seminars, vibration analysis, lubrication system inspection and evaluation, contamination prevention analysis, cause of failure tracking, spindle upgrades, and much more. We provide comprehensive reports on what we have observed along with recommended corrective actions.
When is a warranty not a warranty? When it is not honored! Along with having one of the most all-encompassing warranties in the industry, NTE is proud of the integrity it applies to ensure that you, our customer, are completely satisfied with the service you have been provided.
