Pope P32 Spindle Repair
This is a standard surface grinding spindle made by the Pope corp. We have fixed hundreds of spindles like this one and can hold micron tolerances if needed for die work and other high tolerance manufacturing. We also can incorporate updated seal designs for additional contamination protection.
This Pope P32 grinding spindle was sent in for us to completely break down and inspect. After fully disassembling the spindle, we noted that the front roller bearings failed from contamination. Lastly, the taper had 8 microns of runout. No other dimensional deviations were noted for this repair.
The following actions were performed on this Pope P32 spindle:
- Clean, inspect overall dimensions
- Replace bearings, o-rings, and assembly screws
- Kiss grind shaft taper
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.
