How To Tell When a CNC Spindle Needs Repair
When you are using your CNC machines every day, it can be hard to know when you have reached the threshold of needing repair. These are some signs that indicate your spindle needs to be repaired or replaced:
- There are finish issues on your machined products. This is especially significant when the issues are on a specific axis or uneven.
- The spindle or machine vibrates unusually when in use. This can be the result of improper lubrication.
- The spindle or machine creates a lot of noise when in use.
- There is visible wear on the spindle mouth. Any damage should be investigated to determine if repair or replacement is necessary.
- There is visible damage on the tool holders. Fretting tends to be the most common type of wear damage.
