Schneider CCP-103 Spindle Repair
The Schneider CCP-103 polishing machine is used in the optical lens manufacturing industry. It is designed to polish contours into the lens while maintaining high productivity and accuracy.
When this Schneider CCP-103 spindle arrived at Northland Tool and Electronics it was in rough condition. The CV joint for the dashpot piston had an excessive amount of play. The piston itself had graphite buildup due to wear and the spindle had polishing slurry contamination throughout. There were no critical dimensional deviations found on this spindle.
The following actions were performed on this Schneider CCP-103 spindle:
- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Replace all bolts and o-rings
- Replace bearings
- Replace Dashpot assembly
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.
