Our Cincinnati Spindle Repair Process

  • Evaluation: Once we receive your spindle, we perform a preliminary inspection to determine your spindle’s general condition, function, and unique features. 
  • Disassembly: Next, we fully disassemble and photograph your spindle to better understand the cause of failure. As previously mentioned, all disassembly and reassembly is performed in our class 10,000 HEPA cleanroom.
  • Quote & Failure Analysis Report: After we determine a potential cause of failure, we send you a quote along with a complete failure analysis report. This report highlights the potential cause of failure, an estimated project time and cost, and the appropriate actions we’re recommending. 
  • Repair: When we receive your approval, we’ll start repairing, rebuilding, or remanufacturing your spindle. We’ll clean all components, order new components if needed, and perform any necessary machining or grinding if operating specs require it. 
  • Assembly: After components are replaced or repaired, we’ll assemble your spindle.
  • Testing & Balancing: To ensure quality, we’ll test your spindle under both normal and extreme operating conditions. Our tests usually include spindle vibration and thermal analysis. 
  • QA: Before we ship your spindle back to you, we always perform one final inspection and record all data from our inspection.
  • Shipping: Lastly, we’ll ship your spindle back to you along with a full report that highlights what we did, which components were replaced, testing and inspection information, and recommended installation steps. 

Cincinnati Spindle Maintenance Tips

The following tips can help you further extend the accuracy and lifespan of your Cincinnati spindle.

  1. Thorough Training:  Improper use is a leading cause of accelerated spindle wear. Create training opportunities for your technicians to learn how to maintain spindles after the first signs of wear. Preventative maintenance through quality training helps reduce downtime and issues in the manufacturing process.
  2. Documentation: Create clear documentation on the service history of your spindles, and make that information available to all relevant parties. Ensure your technicians update the service record with each cleaning and inspection.
  3. Vibration Analysis: A vibration analysis is one of the most effective early warning systems for a compromised spindle. By accurately measuring the same speed and load, you can track any changes in the spindle over time. Consider using permanently mounted vibration sensors for on-the-job monitoring. This design allows you to gain critical information without shutting down the machine or removing the spindle.
  4. Perform Maintenance: Maintenance tasks include replacing bearings, cleaning and lubricating components, balancing, and repairing drawbars.
