There was no drawbar assembly supplied incoming and the Capto insert appears to have some tooling wear.
The following actions were performed on this Okuma Multus B300 spindle:
- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Replace all bolts and o-rings
- 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.
