Five ways to extend spindle life.

Machine spindles are the heart and soul of your milling operations. When they fail, it is often at the worst possible time. But, just like a human heart, there are things you can do to help prevent catastrophic failure. Here are five things you can do to take control of your spindles and help prevent premature failure.

  1. Contamination is a serious spindle killer. While most look to the coolant as the main way contamination seeps in, don’t overlook the air supply. The compressed air you rely on for automatic tool changes, transporting coolant, and removing chips, can also introduce contamination if the air is not dry.
  2. Drawbar pull force must be maintained to overcome the centrifugal force of the spinning spindle and the cutting load on the tool. Test your spindle pull force semiannually, or as chatter or part quality issues arise, to ensure the drawbar is functioning properly.
  3. Improper lubrication is another source of premature spindle failure. Don’t assume what works for one machine will work for another – follow your machine or spindle manual for lubrication pressure and volume settings. Ensure your lubricants are clean and to the manufacturers specifications and maintained at the correct levels.
