Fischer Fortuna FIV80R250.44 Spindle Repair
The Fischer Fortuna FIV80R250.44 spindle is a grease lubricated and belt driven spindle capable of running up to 17,000 rpm.
We have had this customer for over 20 years, but unfortunately our contact had retired. We introduced ourselves to the new contact and stayed in touch. About a month later, they called and had a spindle go down and were sending it in. We received the spindle and found the front and rear bearings failed from contamination and the quill taper had 14 microns of run out.
The following actions were performed on this Fischer FIV80R250.44 spindle:
- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Replace all bolts and o-rings
- Replace bearings
- Kiss grind quill taper
After reassembly of all components, adjusting bearing preload, and undergoing break-in and testing procedures, this spindle passed our final quality inspection before being returned to our customer with a 1-year warranty.
