At Bourn & Koch, we offer a wide variety of services for machine tools. One of the brands that we have a lot to offer on is DeVlieg. DeVlieg built the famous “Jigmil”, an extremely precise horizontal boring mill. The first Jigmil is actually in the Henry Ford Museum. We not only provide OEM repair parts and field service for DeVlieg, but also build new DeVlieg horizontal boring mills and remanufacture/rebuild them.
One of the more unique services that we offer for DeVlieg is a spindle bar and sleeve reconditioning. When your DeVlieg’s spindle bar and its sleeve are no longer straight or are out of alignment, Bourn & Koch can recondition your spindle bar and sleeve back to OEM tolerances. Bourn & Koch even offers a “loaner” spindle bar to reduce down time as we perform the work stated below. This way, you can keep your Jigmil busy while we get your DeVlieg’s bar & sleeve back in great shape.
With a standard spindle bar and sleeve reconditioning, we perform the following:
- Polish spindle for appearance
- Grind spindle taper and bump face back to gauge line
- Supply reconditioned sleeve on exchange
- Provide new liners
- Replace or rework bearing journals & oil seal journals
- Supply installation inspection data
Optional work includes:
- Lapping spindle diameter to remove minor pitting
- Straightening of spindle
- Reworking damaged bearing journals
- Replacement of solid drive keys with newer replacable design
- New drive keys
We offer a one year warranty on material and workmanship. This warranty is only honored if Bourn & Koch Field Service performs the installation.
