Upon receiving this spindle GTI technicians found the Makino had very dry bearings and insufficient lubrication. Slight contamination was found throughout the bearings.
The repair consisted of our standard breakdown, cleaning, and inspection. For this repair GTI installed one pair of new bearings, two new roller bearings, and 80 new Bellville washers on the drawbar. We also machined the drawbar cap, installed new o-rings, grinding nuts and spacers. The repair concluded with our standard assembly, balance, test run, outgoing quality control tests. The Makino MC1010 was repainted and crated in one of our custom spindle boxes.
