IBAG North America provides repair, installation, and rebuilding services for all IBAG high speed spindles. All repair work, including bearing replacements, balancing, run-in, and vibration testing is performed in our modern North Haven, Connecticut facility.
 
The initial step in the repair process is a thorough evaluation of the spindle condition and suspected cause of failure. Photos are taken and observations are recorded within the service repair report. Following this analysis, a detailed cost proposal is provided to the customer, including all parts and labor required for the spindle repair. Upon approval, the spindle is fully disassembled and all internal parts are checked for wear. Parts are then cleaned in a hot, ultrasonic cleaner, and dried. If necessary, the spindle rotor shaft is placed on a precision balancer, checked, and rebalanced to less than a G1 level.
 
The spindle components are then reassembled with new parts and bearings, following procedures strictly required by the factory. After assembly is completed, the spindle then moves to the test field area for run-in, balancing, and final test.
 
In the test field area, each spindle is connected to a high frequency drive, bearing lubrication system, and chiller, if required. The spindle bearings are then run-in, gradually increasing spindle RPM until the maximum speed is reached. This process may take many hours. At regular intervals, critical spindle operating parameters are checked and recorded, including housing temperature, vibration, current, and taper run-out. All recorded data is saved, per ISO9001 requirements, in a data base according to the spindle serial number. Our extensive test and run-in process insures that all rebuilt IBAG spindles will provide the most reliable operation for our customers following a repair.
 
Following completion of the spindle run-in, a trim balance operation may be performed to optimize spindle balance, or a re-grind of the spindle taper to achieve the required run-out accuracy. The spindle repair is then complete, ready to be packed and shipped back to the customer. All spindle repairs carry a six month warranty, including bearings. 
 
In addition to IBAG spindle repairs, all other spindle system components are also fully supported for repair and spare parts. This would include high frequency spindle drives, chillers, bearing lubrication systems, and other accessory parts.
