One of our customers was experiencing chatter on the parts manufactured in their Okuma MX50 HA. They could not afford downtime but the parts were becoming unacceptable. They pulled the spindle on Thursday afternoon and we received it late in the day. We evaluated the cause of failure and what work needed to be done to fully repair the spindle. We dedicated a technician to the repair and we were able to have the spindle repair completed by early Friday afternoon. The Okuma technician was able to install the spindle Friday before the end of the workday.
The repair was done in less than 24 hours and the machine was making parts in a little over 24 hours.
