One of the mechanical jobs we have completed this week. Our customer complained of poor surface finish when cutting in the X plane on his XYZ 710VMC.
On investigation there was a lot of backlash on the X axis caused by worn out bearings front and rear. Once replaced with high performance SKF bearings, a thorough clean, circularity checks and optimised drives, the 10 year old VMC was back on top form again.
