We provide engineering services to investigate wear and failure modes and, if possible, re-engineer solutions to provide better life and MTBF.
SPINDLE RE-MANUFACTURING RESOLUTION
Finite Element Analysis of the spindle showing the structural integrity.
Stress analysis through tensional loading and vertical loading.
Cracking at the bearing area and spline was due to high stress.
- Crack detection and defect assessment.
- Metallurgical and heat treatment analysis of the parent material.
- Machine away cracked area and submerged arc build up and remachine to as new condition.
- Heat treatment and controlled induction hardening of spline area 52-56HRc to prevent fatigue cracking.
