Why Do You Need Okuma Spindle Repair?
A variety of factors can lead to you needing spindle repairs. Spindles might fail due to exposure to contaminants because of faulty seals or lack of lubrication caused by a problem with the machine tool. Whatever the cause, the important thing is to diagnose the problem and correct it as fast as possible.
Benefits of Spindle Repair
Spindle repair is often the preferred route because it allows the customer to receive a thoroughly tested, up-to-date spindle for a reasonable cost. The diagnostic process can also reveal potential problems with the cutting tool itself and may help prevent more, even costlier, breakdowns in the future. Understanding what went wrong with the spindle can lead to revised procedures that can help shop owners realize greater efficiency and profits over time.
Repair vs Replacement
When a spindle needs repairs, shop owners who depend on every piece of equipment to fill orders on tight production schedules can be a significant problem. No one can afford a lengthy wait while the repair company tries to determine the extent of the damage and the cost of getting the spindle back online. At the same time, replacing the spindle out of desperation is often an unnecessary waste of money.
The shop owner needs to weigh several factors carefully before deciding whether to replace or repair the spindle.
- Will the repaired spindle meet or exceed OEM specifications? Having a subpar result because the repair company used substandard replacement parts will usually cause more problems.
- What will the warranty for the repaired spindle cover? A cheap fix often comes with little or no service after the repair, which could leave you in worse shape than you started.
- How quickly can the repair company have the spindle back to you and operational? An upfront and precise company about turnaround times is invaluable to a shop owner trying to calculate losses due to a broken spindle.
- Is the repair team qualified to do the job? Diagnosing and accurately repairing spindles takes extensive experience and training. Make sure the company you select is up to the job.
