Phoenix 500C - Fast, Agile Production of Truck-Size Gears
Gleason’s Phoenix® 500C Bevel Gear Cutting Machine has been designed to bring speed, flexibility and ease-of-use to medium and high volume production of precision bevel gears for trucks, buses, and other applications of similar size.

Highly Versatile and Flexible
Gleason Phoenix machines can produce all types of face and straight bevel gears, SRH, Zerol®, spiral and hypoid gears, couplings and even straight bevel gears with front hubs.
Unmatched Speed and Productivity
Machine motions are inherently shorter and faster with a design that puts cutter and workpiece in closer proximity.
High Static and Dynamic Stiffness
New column and slide design guarantees exceptional static and dynamic stiffness to meet high volume and precision requirements. The Phoenix 500C features superior protection of rails and ball screws, with robust, precision components throughout the machine.
Serial chamfering of the heel can be performed optionally, well protected from the conditions during gear cutting.
Greatly Reduced Non-Productive Time
Chip-to-chip time is exceptionally low, with flexible robotic automation, facilitating loading/unloading of workpieces as heavy as 150 kg.
Available with Gleason stackable-tray and palletized automation solutions. Auxiliary processes can be added to meet specific requirements, including washing, laser marking, chamfering/deburring, and inspection.
Powerful Controls - User-Friendly Operation
GEMS machine operating software for easy setup and intuitive operation with network capabilities for fast integration into any modern production environment.
Ergonomic, User-Friendly Design
The machine design puts the operator at floor level with cutter head and workpiece, resulting in easy and convenient access to the workarea - no platform required.
