Repair and Rebuild Options

Our technicians perform extensive testing and diagnostics – as well as a full teardown and cleaning – to provide an accurate estimate and repair plan outlining all the work that needs to be completed. Often, the best way to repair a worn or damaged Omlat spindle is to rebuild it from the ground up. If a full rebuild isn’t required, however, we can replace or repair your spindle’s motor, bearings or other individual components. As part of your free quote, we will go over your options in detail to help you make an informed decision. 

Testing and Inspections

Every Omlat electrospindle repair or rebuild begins with a comprehensive inspection of the damaged tool. This includes:

·         A visual inspection of the assembled unit’s motor, axis, shaft, housing, bearings and other components for signs of deformity and other wear

·         Bench testing, including IRD vibration analysis, encoder reading verification, tooling runout measurements and pull-force assessments

·         A thorough disassembly and cleaning of your spindle to inspect the bearings and other hardware, and determine the cause of the issue

Following the above, our technicians will know enough to put together an accurate initial estimate. We will then price out and order parts, or perform any repairs as necessary. To ensure exceptional quality control, the final assembly is always performed by the same team member who took apart your spindle initially. 

Benefits of Rebuilding a Spindle

There are many reasons why a manufacturer will choose to rebuild an Omlat spindle instead of replacing it with a new unit. Rebuilding gives you a product that’s comparable to new at a fraction of the price. In fact, performance can often be upgraded by modifying the unit’s engine or tooling. All our rebuilt spindles are backed by a one-year warranty for additional peace of mind. We also document all work as it’s being done, so you know you are getting everything you paid for.

Whether it’s a repair or a complete rebuild, we can provide service to keep your Omlat spindle working its best. To learn more about your options, please contact a Colonial Tool Group representative directly.
