When this Fischer MFVS-1245 spindle arrived at Northland Tool and Electronics we performed a full disassembly and evaluation. We noted that the rear nut had backed off, causing the bearings to lose preload and fail. It was also noted that the front and rear housings were oversized and would need to be addressed.
The following actions were performed on this Fischer MFVS-1245 spindle:
- Clean, inspect overall dimensions
- Replace bearings
- Grind, chrome plate, and finish grind the front and rear housing
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.
