- Disassembly - We completely tear down, clean and
inspect each component part.
- Evaluation - The spindle is systematically
evaluated and you are quoted a firm price for rebuilding.
- Restoration - As needed, the process includes
hard chrome plating, regrinding of bearing journals and housing
bearing bores. Our grinding professionals hold an accuracy of
0.000050" on internal diameters. Finished spindle shafts are
balanced on a computerized Hofmann H10BK.
- Assembly - We use ABEC7 and ABEC9 precision
bearings. All assembly is done in our environmentally controlled
"clean-room". A run-in period tests every spindle at rated
RPM for balance, bearing temperature and critical runout.
- Shipping - We use a High-Density Foam-in-Place
packaging system to protect your spindle during shipment. This high
performance system blocks and braces your investment to provide
superior shipping protection.
