Mazak Quick Turn 8 Spindle Repair
This spindle was sent to us by a machine tool repair company in Canada who was doing on site service to a Mazak Quick turn machine. We have several relationships with independent repair professionals because we provide them with quality repairs that they know will be backed by us. This particular repair needed to be rushed for their customer. We worked closely with the repair company on the logistics of delivery and shipping. To expedite the delivery our customer crossed the boarder and hand carried the spindle to the end user. He was impressed by our facility and has sent several more spindles to Northland Tool in the recent months. If you are in Quebec and need service we would be happy to refer them. They worked hard to meet the end users needs!
Once this Mazak Quick Turn 8 arrived at our facility we quickly broke it down and evaluated it. Upon inspection we noted that the bearings were severely worn from years of use. We also noted that the taper face was damaged from chuck removal and will need to be addressed. No dimensional deviations were noted on this spindle.
The following actions were performed on this Mazak Quick Turn 8 spindle:
- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Repair damage on taper face
- Replace bearings
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.
