As the only company offering this service, we repair ceramic spindle tapers Sk40 and SK50 (MORI SEIKI ).
We remove the defective ceramic spindle taper in your factory and replace it by a hardened steel-bushing with internal taper without removing the spindle from the machine. Subsequently, the steel spindle taper is then regrinded in the machine for maximum concentricity.
The advantage of this steel spindle taper over the ceramic taper is that after a further crash regrinding can be accomplished very cost effective.
The entire spindle repair is finalized within 1-2 days, resulting in very small machine down-time.
On the accomplished work we grant you a warranty period of 12 months.
