A noisy spindle and poor surface finish on his Hardinge lathe was the complaint from this customer. We carried out a site visit to diagnose, after a few checks and tests we concluded that the spindle bearings had started to fail.
Unfortunately through excessive working, the grease had dried out, it was only a matter of time until the spindle seized completely potentially causing more damage.
We removed the spindle and had it professionally rebuilt, run and tested it before returning to recommission it.
All this was done over 3 days to minimise disruption to our customer.
