Fixing a spindle motor requires a keen eye and the right tools for the job. The slightest mistake when repairing a spindle motor could result in recurring faults. Spindles are motors that rotate at high velocity. They are common in advanced machinery like CNC milling machines. Like all machine components, spindles are subject to wear and tear with time.
It is not advisable to repair your spindle in-house. Without prior knowledge of CNC spindle repair, one can make irreversible mistakes that just cost you more time and money. Fixing faulty spindles requires:
- High-quality parts
- Close tolerance measuring equipment
- The proper balancing equipment
- Knowledge in dynamic rotational balancing
- A deep understanding of bearing fits and mounting configurations
- Precision machining
- Precision grinding
- Electrical knowledge
High-quality spare parts
When spindles rotate at high speeds, they experience rapid wear and tear. Using high quality and durable spare parts slows down the wear and tear. The best quality spindle motor spare parts are not cheap. A spindle motor service expert must source the same quality materials for rebuilding faulty spindles. These components are expensive and require sophisticated tools to properly assemble them into the spindle motor.
Dynamic rotational balancing One of the most important things when rebuilding a spindle is to properly balance the spindle. A spindle not balanced or improperly balanced will have vibration that will prematurely wear the bearings and other components. Spindle imbalance can cause:
- Damage of internal spindle components
- Cause poor finishes
- Prematurely wear tooling
- Overheating issues
Fixing a faulty spindle requires a sharp eye. In addition, all damaged components of a spindle require skill and precision to correct. Whether it is replacing worn-out bearings, Hard chrome plating, and grinding of the bearing journals on the shaft or bore of the housing, accuracy, and precision will prevent recurring spindle problems. Only a trained spindle repair technician will be skilled on measurements of all the critical components.
