Spin a Tool? Have excessive runout or poor part finishes?Don't just replace the spindle. Regrinding the spindle taper can remedy many of these problems and bring runout back to factory new specs.
On-Site Spindle Taper Grinding
Over time, taper wear will occur to any spindle which can lead to problems with runout and part finishes. Tools can spin and cause damage after a retention knob breaks, an operator oversight or programming error causes a wreck, or a part comes loose on the table. This damage is almost always repairable in place, within one shift, without needing to pull or rebuild the spindle. Outfitted with Locher, Inc’s own mobile grinding units, our field service technicians can come on-site, set up on your machine in-house and regrind the damaged spindle taper back to new specifications. This reduces your machines downtime from weeks to days.
