Gleason Brings Advanced New Gear Production, Inspection and Service Technologies to Gear Expo
An array of new machine and tooling technologies for production and inspection of cylindrical and bevel gears, as well as significant new service capabilities, will be on display at Gear Expo.
August 28, 2017, Rochester, New York
Gleason will demonstrate a host of advanced machines, tooling, software and global customer support services at Gear Expo 2017 in Columbus, OH October 24-26, Booths 1411 and 1628.
Among the most noteworthy of the new technologies is the Gleason 300GMSL Inspection System which, in addition to conventional tactile probing, offers non-contact laser sensor scanning of tooth flanks to support gear development. Complete topography data can be recorded more rapidly than with conventional tactile probing, with comparable results.
The integration of laser scanning and associated 3D graphics with CAD interface considerably expands both functionality and range of applications for this machine platform, making the 300GMSL the ideal solution for research and development applications for prototype and production parts or when reverse engineering is required. It can easily accommodate spur and helical cylindrical gears as well as straight, spiral and hypoid bevel gears, with diameters of up to 300 mm.
Its capabilities also include surface finish measurement and Barkhausen noise analysis to inspect for grind burn.
Another important new Gleason technology at Gear Expo will be the new Genesis® 400HCD Hobbing Machine. For hobbing of larger cylindrical gears in small batches, Gleason's new continuous fly cutting' process offers significant advantages for improving chamfering flexibility and reducing costs as compared to chamfering on a dedicated, stand-alone machine. This feature is available on the new Genesis® 400HCD Hobbing Machine, designed for workpieces up to 400 mm outside diameter and module 8 mm. The 400HCD has the capability to chamfer/deburr in parallel with hobbing-eliminating the cycle times and cost per piece added when chamfering/deburring conventionally.
The 500CB Cutter Build Inspection Machine is for automatic, accurate and repeatable builds. The 500CB delivers more accurate and highly automated build, truing and inspection of all types of stick-blade bevel gear cutters with automated closed-loop blade positioning for better gear quality and maximum tool life.
