(Manchester, NH - June 1, 2006) GTI Spindle Technology announces its optimization of its Makino Spindle Test Run Station in Manchester, NH. This optimization better allows GTI Spindle to thoroughly mimic the conditions of the spindle once installed into the actual Makino Machine Tool itself.
Enhanced capabilities include:
o High Frequency, High Horsepower, Variable Frequency Drive with encoder feedback.
o Capable of running and testing both high speed and low speed motor windings.
A duplicate of Makino's oil-matic system designed and built by GTI Spindle's engineering team which acts as a chiller, vacuum, oil delivery and oil recovery system. This is a filtered system and all functions can be run independently or simultaneously to assist in troubleshooting.
Spindles are balanced on stand while interfaced with all spindle support systems.
Currently capable of running Makino A series, J series, MC and MCB series Spindles.
The company, well known for machine tool spindle repair and maintenance programs, now has four (4) service facilities in the United States to meet customer demand.
Says GTI Spindle Sales Manager, Lisa Bailey-Beavers, "This test stand allows us to provide the highest quality rebuilds that have been repaired and tested just as they would be from the Makino factory only at a fraction of the cost and lead time."
GTI Spindle Technology with locations in Manchester, NH, Bloomington, IL, Romulus, MI and Pontiac, IL offers a variety of services including failure analysis and corrective action programs, vibration analysis diagnostics and guaranteed cost savings programs. They inspect, repair and remanufacture spindles and other precision rotating assemblies including super precision high frequency, motorized, belt and gear driven spindles with emphasis on Japanese and European High Speed Machining Centers.
