BESSEMER CITY, N.C. -- Precision Drive Systems, a provider of high-speed precision spindle motors, support and repair, has announced that they are now offering repairs on a range of main and scoring saw arbors to better-than-factory standards.

PDS repairs both main and scoring arbors at less than the price of OEM replacement cost with a better-than-factory runout and upgraded bearing specifications, said Calvin Stiles, market development manager for PDS. “PDS rebuilt saw arbors also solve runout issues with precision-face grinding and precise measuring in a micron/control room environment,” he said.

PDS repairs both main and scoring arbors for all Altendorf, Biesse, Gabbiani, Giben, Holz-Her, Holzma, Homag, SCM, Schelling, Selco among other brands to better-than-factory standards. The industries PDS serves include cabinet manufacturers, RTA furniture, cut-to-size, millwork, institutional casework, plastics fabricating, PCB and advanced materials cutting, flooring and board manufacturing plants.

In PDS’ saw arbor repair process, the saw arbors are disassembled, cleaned and evaluated. Critical surfaces are precision ground. Bearing and spacer stackups are measured. Upgraded bearings are specified and installed, then each unit receives final assembly, run-in, temperature, balance and vibration analysis to complete the repair. PDS also backs each rebuilt unit with a six-month warranty.  For more information, visit the company’s new website at
