Chiron Spindle Repair Case Study
The Chiron FZ 12 was sent to our repair facility, non-functional due to it being locked up. The coolant jacket was pressure tested to see if it was leaking, which it failed. Once disassembled, our Spindle Technician concluded that the spindle bearings had failed due to coolant ingression washing out the grease from the bearings. The worn O-rings on the spindle were replaced to prevent future coolant leaks. Some wear and tear was done on the Inner tapper of the spindles shaft, and was requalified to fit HSK 63 tool holders. In addition, an inner spacer needed to be manufactured to replace a damaged one. Once reassembled, this spindle was test ran inside a Chiron Cartridge Spindle Housing that we own. It was test run for 4 hours after being precisely balanced with our advanced diagnostic equipment by one of our Spindle Technicians. Much time and care is put into precisely balancing and testing each spindle, to ensure the highest degree of quality in spindles we repair.
