Schneider CCP 103 Spindle Repair
This Schneider CCP 103 spindle was sent in for a breakdown and evaluation. Upon inspection, we noted that the front bearings failed from contamination. Grinding slurry has a bad habit of working its way into this type of spindle over time. The contamination could have came from the seals and o-rings being worn.
The following actions were performed on this Okuma MC-V4020 spindle:
- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Replace bearings, o-rings, and assembly screws
- Replace seals
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.
