Gleason to Demonstrate Advanced Gear Production at AMB in Stuttgart/Germany

Ago 24, 2016

Aug 01, 2016, Ludwigsburg, Germany

Gleason will demonstrate at Booth C70, Hall 8, brand new solutions in advanced gear manufacturing technology, covering a wide array of processes for the complete production and inspection of all types of bevel and cylindrical gears. Among the technologies to be exhibited are:

Gleason Hard Gear Power Skiving on the 300PS Fine Finishing of Internal Gears

Hard Gear Power Skiving can be witnessed for the first time ever at the AMB show in Stuttgart. The machines of the Gleason PS series offer tailored solutions for the efficient production of internal gears. The extraordinarily stiffness of these machines, modular workholding and well-designed tools meet the high requirements of the process. Additionally, the Gleason Power Skiving Simulation Software depicts the cutting cycle for every cut and ensures that cycle times are minimized and tool life is maximized.

500CB Cutter Build Inspection Machine Automatic, Accurate and Repeatable Builds of Bevel Gear Cutter Heads

Another premiere is the 500CB which is shown for the first time outside the Gleason premises. The 500CB delivers a more accurate build, including truing and inspection of all types of stick-blade bevel gear cutters – completely automatic. Blade positioning is executed via an automated closed loop for accurate and repeatable builds including the controlled tightening of the blade clamp screws, consistently applying the correct torque. With the 500CB, even unexperienced operators are able to build a cutter head with consistent quality and repeatability like an experienced professional.

100HiC – The New Shaft Master Combined Hobbing and Chamfering Deburring of Gears

The brand-new 100HiC features the next development step of the successful P90 Horizontal Hobbing Machine with an integrated, NC-controlled chamfering and deburring station. The strength of this machine lies in its ability to cut geared shafts employing the one or two-pass cutting method for burr-free flanks in subsequent hard finishing processes like honing or grinding.  The 100HiC exploits the benefits of latest cutting tools like Gleason high-speed and carbide hobs as well as rotary chamfering tools. The 100HiC is equipped with the next generation Gleason Operating software for easy and efficient operation which can be tried out at the show.

Gleason Automation Systems with Modular, Integrated Solutions
Gleason Automation Systems specializes in the design and manufacture of factory automation systems serving a variety of customers in the automotive and other industries. Gleason will present the modularity of its automation systems with the compact DS1200 automation unit. The DS1200 is a fast and reliable alternative to expensive, operator-dependent conveyor automation. The compact system, which is compatible with most machine tools, uses robotic technology for loading and unloading. Its secondary operations capability allows the DS1200 to function as a versatile work cell while eliminating operator machine tending.

Tool and Servicing Solutions

Gleason will present its complete gear manufacturing tool program including modern tool servicing concepts with integrated connectivity. At the Gleason booth, Gear Manufacturer will find latest tool materials, advanced carbides as well as innovative wear coatings. Gleason tool solutions will be presented live in action, for gear hobbing, chamfering/deburring as well as for hard finishing of internal gears. For bevel gears Gleason will show new cutter head systems for fast and easy assembly and inspection, and excellent cutting results. Gleason will also present its latest line of hard finishing tools including dressing tools for grinding and honing applications.

Advanced Workholding Solutions

At AMB, Gleason will demonstrate its line of hydraulic workholding solutions. Holding force, accuracy and contamination-free designs are well suited for dry gear processing applications as well.  The new Gleason Stir-Able Modular Workholding designs allow off-spindle assembly and truing, reducing changeover time as well as the amount of total run-out in the fixture.

Quik-Flex® Plus, Gleason’s next generation of modular, quick-change workholding systems requires a single tool, less time and minimal operator experience. Customers are invited to stop by and participate in the Gleason Quik-Flex®Plus Challenge to experience how easy it is to change the modular components.

Gleason Global Services Shows its Complete Service Offering

Gleason Global Services and Gleason Gear Academy form one of the leading sources of gear technology knowhow and education worldwide. Gleason trainers will be promoting the full range of training classes ranging from beginner levels to the most advanced expert topics.  Gleason Global Services will present its range of service lifecycle products including performance upgrades, modernization programs and tooling services by showing practical examples.

Gleason Plastic Gears for Stronger, Quieter Gears
Gleason Plastic Gears will showcase its capabilities in plastic gear design and injection molded plastic gears including bevel and cylindrical gears, helical and spur gears, planetary and internal gears. Gleason Plastic Gears provides customers with the benefit of a plastic gear with no weld-line for a stronger, more accurate, and economical drive train, eliminating the additional expense of secondary machining. Gleason offers a complete solution for plastic gears, from consulting, design, choice of material, prototyping to the production of optimized gear sets.

Gleason is a leader in the development, manufacture and sale of gear production machinery and related equipment and automation solutions. The Company’s products are used by customers in automotive, truck, aircraft, agriculture, mining, energy, construction, power tool and marine industries and by a diverse set of customers serving various industrial equipment markets. Gleason has manufacturing operations in the United States, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, India, China and Japan, and has sales and service offices throughout North and South America, Europe and in the Asia-Pacific region.
