Toshiba BP130 Spindle Repair
We supply bearings for this customer that they keep in stock for this Toshiba BP130 Boring Mill. When they perform a machine refurbishment we are able to rebuild the spindle assembly in just a few days. This limits the machine downtime to less than a week and allows them to keep the flow of work through this department at a steady rate. They will call us when they are ready to recondition the next machine and Northland Tool reserves time in our assembly department exclusively for them. As this is such a key piece of equipment for them we are on call during the process 24 hours a day to answer any questions their personnel may have.
When we completed a full breakdown and evaluation of this Toshiba BP130 spindle, we noted that the front bearing behind the roller bearing had catastrophically failed. The cage was destroyed, but fortunately the shaft was good. No dimensional deviations were noted for this repair.
The following actions were performed on this Toshiba BP130 spindle:
- Clean all parts of the spindle
- Replace bearings, o-rings, and assembly screws
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.
