SPS Spindle repairs and services a wide variety of spindles styles including centerless grinding spindles. While they are not one of the more common spindles we see on a daily basis, we have the expertise to handle this unique spindle. Centerless spindles feature a regulating wheel spindle with a rubber wheel and another spindle running parallel to this with the grinding wheel. Parts are then run through the two wheels to grind the OD of the surfaces.
Centerless grinding requires a specific setup that allows the center of spindle to run while the two ends are locked in and remain stationary. Newer models which are roller bearing spindles can be run and rebuilt fairly quickly and efficiently compared to older oil-bearing spindles.
All spindles handled by SPS are run and tested at full speed to emulate as closely as possible how they need to perform in the real-world environment of the final application.
