About AST

Your Spindle Service Partner

Advanced Spindle Technology, LLC was founded to address a critical need in the manufacturing market for expert and timely spindle repair. There are very few companies in existence who are truly competent to fully analyze and repair precision machine spindles and even fewer still who can diagnose and correct an inherent problem.

Spindle

Our business model differs from that of many of our competitors. We incorporate state-of-the-art, sophisticated equipment combined with years of know-how to properly return a precision machine spindle to “like new” working order. Key to this process is the depth of knowledge to do accurate failure analysis that determines why a spindle failed and what needs to be done to correct the problem. At AST, our trained personnel have backgrounds in super precision bearing design and application as well as machine tool engineering. From this type of expertise, we are able to evaluate if a spindle is adequate to do the job it is being asked to perform or if changes need to be made to make it more capable or more robust.

Our capabilities also extend to repairing and refurbishing parts in-house. From restoring an arbor bearing journal by undergrinding and plating to redesigning and making new components, our technicians are uniquely trained to handle the job. Our knowledge of superprecision bearing design and unmatched connections within the bearing industry enable us to get even special bearings quickly.

This unique combination of capability allows AST to evaluate, repair and get your spindle back in operation substantially quicker than any of our competitors. We are keenly aware that when a spindle is delivered to our door, that machine is down and costing you money.

The next time you need a spindle repaired, we sincerely hope you will give Advanced Spindle Technology an opportunity to earn your business. We can assure you that you will be pleased with the result.

AST is part of the HEH Group which also includes Ultra Tech Machinery, The Motch & Eichele Company, and Crotts & Saunders.
