RECENT REBUILD AND REPAIR OF A CUSTOMERS HARDINGE LATHE
Review the rebuild and repair of a Hardinge Lathe. Our in shop experts completed the following: taken apart and completely realigned. The compound, cross slide, and carriage were hand scraped and brought back to factory tolerances of ± 0.0005″. The rails were removed, ground, and made parallel. Additionally, the head stock was rebuilt and the spindle bearings were replaced. This Hardinge Lathe was then finished with a machine gray paint. Quality control our highest priority was confirmed through functionality tests, all of which can be completed in just 6 to 8 weeks.
