GTI Spindle Technology Inc. has announced that its newly-opened North Carolina facility is now fully operational. The facility is staffed with technicians that are capable of repairing and rebuilding high-precision spindles, including those made by Makino, Mazak, Kessler, Gamfior, Enshu and OKK.

The new facility also provides on-site predictive maintenance services, including vibration analysis routes for customers that want to ensure maximum uptime and reliability for their facilities. The predictive maintenance services are combined with spindle repair capabilities to ensure no asset is out of commission at an inopportune time, says the company. 

GTI inspects, repairs and remanufactures spindles and other precision rotating assemblies including super precision, high-frequency motorized-, belt- and gear-driven spindles with special emphasis on Japanese, German and Italian high-speed machining centers. The new location provides an extension to serve the company’s Southeast U.S. customers.

The facility is hosting an open house in August. Those in attendance will see the facilities and meet the technicians that work on spindles repaired at the new facility.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.

    Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
