A single machine tool spindle failure can spell disaster for your entire production line. Whether the cause is due to contaminants, human error, improper maintenance, lubrication issues, or poor spindle design, a failed or damaged spindle means more downtime and less productivity, hurting your operation’s bottom line.

That’s why it’s so important to find CNC spindle repair services you can trust. You need a vendor with the experience, expertise and technical knowledge to deliver your remanufactured spindle in better-than-OEM condition. Attention to detail, clear communication and outstanding turn-around times are other hallmarks of a trustworthy, reputable spindle remanufacturer.

While spindle rebuilders are available across the country, the quality of service ranges dramatically. Despite the discrepancies, many machinists continue to believe that it doesn’t matter which provider they choose. But the truth couldn’t be more different. Selecting the right spindle repair service means the difference between lost profits and maximum productivity.

Reliable Process for Precision Spindle Repairs

We take meticulous care with each precision spindle repair, following our tried-and-true remanufacturing process. The steps include:

Evaluation – We evaluate and tear down the spindle, disassembling and logging all components.

Cleaning – We chemically clean and geometrically inspect each part, looking for flaws down to a half-micron in size (for reference, a human hair is around 70 microns wide). We ensure feedback accuracy via encoder testing.

Machining – Our expert staff machines and dynamically balances every spindle and component on ultra-precise balancing machines. We perform all machining in-house to ensure better control of delivery.

Assembly – Final assembly takes place in our isolated precision spindle room.

Testing – Each spindle repair runs a minimum of eight hours on specially designed test stands.

Communication is a core component of our precision spindle repair service. We provide a detailed analysis of the reasons behind your spindle failure, as well as actionable recommendations to prevent failure in the future. Our spindle services include a detailed test report and balance analysis, along with a video of the runoff.

Other benefits of working with GCH Tool include:
