The following actions were performed on this Mori Seiki NLX2500 spindle:
- Clean, inspect overall dimensions

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.
