Pope C32-30 Spindle Repair

Recently our Manchester, NH spindle repair facility received another pope spindle repair job for rebuild. A motorized 3,600 RPM grease lubricated grinding spindle.

As with all spindles coming in, it underwent an extensive inspection process to correctly identify the spindle failure. Our top-notch technician Mike L. noted severe contamination throughout this pope spindle repair job. The rotor, the housing, & the shaft were severely contaminated. The front bearings were also badly contaminated this had all caused the spindle to seize.

Once the scope of the rework needed was established, this pope spindle repair involved complete rebuilding. He also prepared a preventive action report for the customer to avoid such contamination in the future.

New bearings were precisely installed. All parts were carefully cleaned and polished then assembled, balanced and test run for full functionality to popes spindle repair specifications. The spindle then underwent a vibration analysis and inspection by an independent GTI quality check manager. It was then sent back to the customer who said “it looks better than new” this made Mike smile.
