Mazak Expands Spindle Rebuild Center

The recent expansion of Mazak’s Spindle Rebuild Department further improves the company’s ability to deliver spindles and reduce customer downtime.

The recent expansion of Mazak’s Spindle Rebuild Department is expected to improve the company’s ability to deliver spindles and reduce customer downtime. The new space includes spindle balancing units and other process systems intended for accommodating larger spindles. The expansion is expected to allow the department to boost its rebuilt output to 100 spindles per month.

The grand opening of the new Spindle Rebuild Department will take place during the company’s Discover 2019 event November 4-15 at the Kentucky manufacturing campus. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Spindle Rebuild Department that supports over 2,000 different models covering a range of horsepower ratings and speeds. The expanded department will keep upwards of 1,000 rebuilt spindles in stock and ready for exchange.

To make sure that all original spindle specifications are met or exceeded, factory-trained technicians only use Mazak replacement parts to rebuild Mazak spindles. The technicians perform every stage of the repair and rebuild process and provide trackable spindle documentation and conduct stringent testing of every spindle.
