Bourn & Koch offers a wide variety of rebuild and repair services at our facility to help keep all makes and models of Springfield Vertical Grinder running well. We are Springfield. That means that we have the knowledge and expertise to service your Springfield Grinder properly. We make the distinction between rebuild and repair, where our competitors do not. When we rebuild your Springfield’s spindle, we do not just repair it, we rebuild the entire spindle. Our in-house repair services allow you to repair only what needs to be repaired as well, cutting down on costs and downtime.
Some of the Springfield Rebuild & Retrofit Services we offer are:
Springfield CNC & PLC Retrofits
Bourn & Koch offers CNC & PLC retrofits for all makes of Springfield grinders. We can not only add CNC or PLC capabilities to your older, manual Springfield but also retrofit your Springfield to newer, modern, CNC or PLC controls. CNC & PLC retrofits for Springfield grinders can be performed at our Rockford, Illinois plant. We can also retrofit newer machine tool systems to your Springfield such as lubrication systems or machine tool probing capabilities.
Springfield Gear Box Rebuild/Repair
Bourn & Koch can rebuild or repair your Springfield gear box in-house at our facility. We can fully tear-down, evaluate and repair or rebuild your Springfield vertical grinder’s gear box. As OEM, we have the layout drawings, mechanical diagrams and detail prints to help us best evaluate and assess what needs to be replaced in your Springfield grinder’s gear box. We not only replace wear parts like seals, bearings and bushings, but also gears, shafts and other components.
Way Resurfacing & Scraping
Bourn & Koch still hand scrapes all of the way surfaces for our machine tools. Your Springfield is no different. When you send in your Springfield for repair to the way surfaces, we offer the same level of care we would to your surface grinder as we would a new machine. We can also replace the linear roller ways and bearings for your machine tool slides. Call for further information on this procedure.
Spindle Bearing Reconditioning
We can fully evaluate, repair and recondition the spindle bearing on your Springfield grinder. ID/OD grinding is a precision machine tool process, requiring a minimum of run-out in your machine tool’s spindle. As the bearing components wear, run-out is increased, reducing your ability to hold tight tolerances. We provide a full evaluation report on your bearing prior to repair or reconditioning to ensure you know whether or not to replace the bearing or repair it.
