Chevalier Cartridge Spindle Repair

Chevalier Spindle Rebuild

This spindle was sent to us because it was giving our customer poor part finish. Our evaluation showed the front bearings had lost their preload. When this happens the balls of the bearing no longer ride in their designated path. Lack of preload can also cause axial and radial looseness which results in poor part finish.

Possible cause of failure:

  • Bearings lost preload
  • Front taper is out of ISO

Repair action:

  • Clean, inspect overall dimensions
  • Replace bearings
  • Kiss front taper
  • Adjust preload, balance, assemble and break in
  • Final quality control inspection
