Gleason Metrology Systems

M&M Precision founded in Dayton, Ohio, USA as a tool and die shop.

M&M introduced a line of linear positioning slides and rotary tables.

M&M introduced the world’s first CNC analytical gear inspection system.

M&M expanded its south Dayton headquarters, located on 8 acres of land.

M&M added a state-of-the-art laboratory that is temperature, climate and vibration controlled and modeled after a laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

M&M Precision is acquired by Danaher Corporation. M&M completed a three year research program funded by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’ Advanced technology program (ATP), the objective of which was a 500 percent increase in the accuracy if measurement equipment, to accuracy level smaller than the width of a light beam.

M&M is awarded another ATP research grant from NIST to improve the operation and efficiency of gear power transmissions.

M&M Precision Systems is acquired by Gleason Corporation and is renamed Gleason M&M Systems. Gleason-M&M Precision Systems’ Calibration Lab received accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 following a successful recertification assessment by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation, A2LA. 2010 is the seventh consecutive year the Lab has achieved this accreditation, which has never been granted to any other lab for gear and spline measurement.

Gleason M&M is renamed Gleason Metrology Systems (GMS) Gleason Metrology Systems introduced its GMS line of Analytical Gear Inspection Systems, featuring Windows-based GAMA™ software and the 3D Renishaw SP80H probe.

GMS completes initial redesign of the GMS product line with analytical inspection capability up to three meters on standard products.

GMS introduces the new 300GMS at AGMA and EMO exhibitions.

Rollout of a new generation of GMS Series inspection systems continues, with fast-expanding capabilities including Barkhausen noise analysis, surface roughness measurement, and GD&T CMM-type measurement.
