Gleason to Host Gear Solutions Forum In Rochester, New York

16º jun. 2015

Gleason Corporation will host the GEAR SOLUTIONS FORUM (GSF) at its worldwide headquarters in Rochester, New York on September 23 and 24, 2015.  This year also marks the Company’s 150th anniversary which will be recognized as part of certain events during the two day forum. 

GSF will include more than 40 demonstrations of products and technologies, covering all major gear production processes addressing a wide variety of industry needs.  The event will be accompanied by presentations from international industry experts who will present their research in a wide range of gear-related subjects relevant to gear design and manufacturing.  The Gear Solutions Forum is a unique educational opportunity, giving visitors an unusually in-depth look at many of the advanced new technologies that will shape the future of gear manufacturing.   Demonstrations and presentations will cover bevel gear technologies for spiral and straight bevel gears, including grind from solid and SmartLap corrective lapping.  For cylindrical gears, live exhibits will include high speed hobbing, power skiving, grinding and optimum processing of large gears both on dedicated gear machines and five axis machining centers.  There will also be a series of inspection and measurement technologies for all types of gears and sizes including single flank roll testing, analytical gear inspection and surface roughness measurement.  In addition, there will be a focus on the heat treatment of gears, quick change workholding solutions and a look at the future digital factory for gear production.

The event will also feature a variety of partners and technology providers to the gear industry covering areas such as software, coatings, heat treatment, machining solutions and more.

The last GSF which took place in April 2014 at the Gleason-Pfauter facility in Ludwigsburg, Germany attracted approximately 600 visitors from 30 countries over a three day period. John J. Perrotti, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gleason Corporation, commented that “The Gear Solutions Forum has truly evolved into the global gear industry’s most comprehensive educational event of the year.  We anticipate response to our first ever GSF in the United States in September, in conjunction with our 150th anniversary,  to be a fantastic experience for all gear enthusiasts and look forward to welcoming guests from across the globe.”
