Lack of Maintenance

Only the very minimum of maintenance is required. A regular check of air supply and coolant systems is all that is necessary to ensure complete reliability.

Normally only a regular check of the air supply is necessary to ensure complete bearing reliability. Providing that the spindle is operating within the design specification limits, the spindle should have a long working life. Normal maintenance usually consists of ensuring that air and water supplies are kept clean and to the correct specifications.

Note: Where a collet or other holding device is fitted to the spindle, specific maintenance regimes must be adhered to.

Typical air filtration requirement: 0.1 micron
