We repair and install spindles for multiple CNC machines brand related to the woodworking industry. Each spindle goes into a controlled and rigorous process of verification, repair and testing. Our certified technicians are always making sure that all components and tolerances respect the OEM standards. All machining and grinding are done in-house. A full one year warranty 24/7 and a control quality report come with most of the repairs.
All our techicians are trained and certified to repair and install woodworking spindles.
We are the only Authorized Canadian Service Center and Distributor for HITECO.
We have a complete in-house machining center- Allows to be faster and provide custom solutions with high precision.
We have a temperature controlled and positive pressure assembly room to prevent contamination and good working conditions.
Specialized equipement help us repair all spindle: Dynamic balancing bench, CMM measuring machine and test benches that simulates your CNC
Our repair process
Identification and prelemimary testing
When we receive the spindle, we do a complete analysis in order to identify the technical problems. We then dissasemble the product and measure each part in our metrology room by using high-end equipement. Components that are not following the manufacturer'specifications, are automatically machined.
Exposure of the problems and detailed quote
Once testing, measuring and assessment are done, a detailed quote with pictures showing all damaged parts, repair solutions and delays will be sent to the customer. As soon as it's aprproved, the magic will start!
The repairs made on the spindle may change depending the problems that were identified. This can includes n-house machining or grinding of spacers, bearing housing, bearing support, taper grind and more. Also, we replace OEM bearings, seals, o-rings, encoder and rotary union. If it is needed we wind the stator and we proceed dynamic balancing.
Final testing and quality control
At last, we assembly the spindle and run it on one of our test benches for hours at full speed making sure all features are working well. It will be like if it was installed on a CNC machine. All information related to repairs and tests will be included in the control quality report.
Analysis of the spindle condition
During the preleminary testing, each spindle is analyzed meticulously. Our technicians are proceeding various tests on it to detect possible problems. Doing that help us to understand better your spindle condition and to propose you the solution that will bring it back at its initial state ! What we look ? Find below the complete list of the tests carried out by our experts .
What we test
• Verification of the raper run-out calibrated test bar 30 mm and 300 mm. • Verification of the taper (CAT, BT, HSK, CAPTO) surface contact. • Verification of the temperature at maximum speed. • Analysis of the bearings condition. • Analysis of the vibration level in mm/sec. • Verification of the spindle lubrification system and chill unit. • Testing of the rentention force (Kn) of the drew-bar system. • Complete winding system analysis if required. • Verification of all sensors status when the tool change syste, is activated.
Since 1970, we have specialized in the repair of high speed electric motors, spindles, servo motors and AC / DC motors. Our team of experts is our greatest asset and we try to do everything possible to make them successful in all areas of life.
