Northland Tool repaired this Mazak VTC 20 spindle for our customer 8 years ago. It started to make some front bearing noise so our customer called us to set up a scheduled repair. With the advanced warning that the spindle was coming in and having the spindle pulled from the machine before additional damage from a failure occured made it possible to complete this repair in a few days. This enabled our long time customer to plan around the machine downtime and not miss deliveries to their customers.
