To date, our sustained growth has allowed us to invest significant dollars to relocate into larger more modern facilities in the City of Granby, Quebec, and to acquire, modify and install new machinery. These investments, along with our exceptional team members, have positioned MEC PRECISION to become a world class spindle repair facility. This new setup includes a complete machining center, balancing, testing and multiple repair stations entirely in their own dedicated controlled areas. These areas all have positive pressure to prevent contamination while assembling spindles.
WEILER E50 HYBRID LATHE
MEC PRECISION acquired the first Weiler hybrid lathe in Quebec. This high quality precision lathe has given us the abilities to machine high precision parts and at the same time respect the tolerances of our spindle manufacturers. The precision of this lathe is up to 0.001um. With this hybrid lathe, we produce mainly shafts and bearings housing that are obsolete, too long to get or unacessible, which will meet the specific requirements high quality standards.
SCHENCK DYNAMIC BALANCING
MEC PRECISION has two dynamic balancing benches, which can balance from 2 to 250 pounds shafts or rotors. Our equipment allows us to meet the balancing tolerances up to (G O.1.
TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED WORKSHOP
The team of MEC PRECISION are working constantly in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. The assembly room even uses positive pressure in order to keep any contaminates that could go into new bearings or internal parts of the spindle.
This allows MEC PRECISION to guarantee the stability of parts and measuring instruments and give maximum performance for multiple repairs.
VIBRATION ANALYSIS EQUIPMENT
Our equipment allows us to verify the frequencies of the bearings, detect the vibration level, misalignement and also if there is any other defective parts Inside the spindle that could affect the vibration level. All these procedures are performed, without the constraint of dismantling the spindle.
SURFACE GRINDER (KENT)
MEC PRECISION has a surface grinder. This enables us to adjust the spacers, when they are defective or broken, in order to provide the appropriate pressure to bearings.
MEC PRECISION has high-precision tools, we maintly use the MITUTOYO brand to inspect and measure all parts and components of your spindle, as well as calibrated master bearing housings of most common bearings ranging from 25mm to 160mm ID. All our equipment is calibrated every year.
CNC 3-AXIS (HURON)
Our 3 axis HURON CNC allows us to machine parts from A to Z that may be broken or discontinued when repairing a spindle. This equipment helps us to reduce your downtime, controls quality standards and avoid us to use services of exterior suppliers .
CNC CYLINDRICAL GRINDER (SUPERTEC)
Our new Supertec CNC cylindrical grinding can be automated and is especially suitable for grinding high-precision workpieces like shafts up to 1 meter long or different bearings housing. Operated by experienced and trained technicians, this multifunction device offers the possibility to give better delays on repair and again control our quality standard in-house without using any suppliers. It is also designed to grind workpieces in individual, small batch and high volume production.
