The other day we were contacted by a long time customer that required a Mori Seiki SH-50 Horizontal 10,000 RPM spindle repair. They were looking for a company that could not only rebuild the spindle but also provide a complete service call, including the removal and reinstallation of the spindle. TD Spindle repair stepped up to the plate with its 15 plus years of CNC machine tools repair experience.
This job was on the challenging side because the machine had crashed and the pallet changer clamps that lock the pallet to the rotary were all snapped in half. It was compounded by the customer’s inability to remove the spindle on their own. Service Manager, William Janes, implemented a plan that would take several hours but would remove the spindle without the use of the rotary table to pull the spindle out. Mel and I personally went out to oversee the project. As usual, William was right with the plan he came up with. William leaned on his many years of machine tool repair experience to remove this four foot monster of a spindle that clearly weighed over 500 pounds.
Now that the spindle has been completely removed, TD Spindle Repair can now begin to repair and rebuild it. TD Spindle repair offers this service to all our customers in Southern California. This makes TD Spindle Repair a unique player in the spindle repair and rebuild business.
