Repair Process


1. Evaluation

Spindles for rework are received and logged into our repair database. Each spindle is assigned a transport bin and tracked throughout the repair.

Each spindle is tested then disassembled into its major components and all critical features and tolerances are inspected for damage or wear.

An estimate for the cost of the repair, including services and parts, is generated and sent to the customer for approval prior to any work being performed.
