Maintenance of spindles in metal cutting or industrial machinery is a critical function of a maintenance engineer. Technicians maintaining them typically require special diagnostic tools and intense technical training. Often component deviations can be traced to faulty spindles. Spindle maintenance requires a thorough knowledge of bearing application, lubrication, assembly tools and techniques.
