< back to All Policies

 

Thank you for your interest in the products and services of EMG Precision. This Limited Warranty applies to physical goods, and only for physical goods, purchased from EMG Precision (the "Physical Goods").

  1. What does this limited warranty cover?

This Limited Warranty covers any defects in material or workmanship under normal use during the Warranty Period. During the Warranty Period, EMG Precision Ltd. will repair or replace, at no charge, products or parts of a product that proves defective because of improper material or workmanship, under normal use and maintenance.

What will we do to correct problems?

With a valid warranty claim EMG Precision Ltd. will either repair the Product at no charge, using new  replacement parts, or replace the unit. This is at the discretion of EMG Precision Ltd. If the spindle is fully replaced the original faulty spindle becomes the property of EMG Precision Ltd.

 

How long does the coverage last?

 

The Warranty Period for Physical Goods purchased from EMG Precision Ltd. is twelve months from the date of purchase or 1800 hours of work, or as uniquely stated byt the product at the time of purchase, whichever comes first. A replacement Physical Good or part assumes the remaining warranty of the original Physical Good or twelve months from the date of replacement or repair, whichever is longer.

 

What does this limited warranty not cover?

 

This Limited Warranty does not cover any problem that is caused by:

  • Conditions, malfunctions or damage not resulting from defects in material or workmanship.

  • Spindle crashes – evidenced by high run-out of dimpling on bearing races.

  • Damage that is caused by using the spindle for purposes greater than its capacity, e.g. a too fast or heavy cut that causes damage.

  • Actuation while running.

  • Incorrect use or connection of electrics, pneumatics or hydraulics.

  • Contamination inside spindle from pneumatic airlines

  • Overheating of spindle due to cooling system failure or abuse.

  • Damage incurred while shipping or mounting of spindle e.g. drops, impacts, shocks, etc.

  • Improper tooling used – out of balance or bent tooling, exceeding speed parameters of tooling & spindle.

  • Operation while in damaged condition- e.g. running with overly worn or damaged bearings or high vibration exposure.

  • Damage from improper storage and exposure to the elements, i.e. water damage
