Gleason Corporation will introduce its latest gear metrology innovation at the upcoming Control Show in Stuttgart, Germany, May 5-8, 2015. The 300GMS®P Analytical Gear Inspection System is designed to operate in production environments while yielding reliable measurement results, with integrated systems designed to compensate for the typical production floor thermal, vibratory and contamination dynamics that normally compromise the performance of metrology systems.
A unique patent-pending base design includes an active leveling system to attenuate a broad spectrum of normal production environment vibrations, yielding measurement values in parallel with those achieved in controlled calibration laboratories, but without the delay of having to move to the lab location.
Thermal fluctuations normally associated with shop floor environments are proactively compensated for, allowing for the best possible and most reliable inspection results. The system identifies and applies a compensation for factory floor influences in real time.
The 300GMS®P Analytical Gear Inspection System is designed and tested to perform as a turn-key gear inspection system in the manufacturing environment, and is the solution to reliable, accurate, gear inspection for today’s demanding applications in aerospace, automotive, and smaller power transmission industries.
This latest addition to the GMS® Series (with models available for gears up to 3,000 mm in diameter) includes features like surface finish measurement and prismatic feature measurement. It is also includes the powerful Gleason GAMA™ 3.0 applications software suite which, like its GAMA™ 2.0 predecessor, offers users a highly intuitive user interface and simple input screens for programming of workpiece and cutting tool data. GAMA™ 3.0 also includes tutorial information on the gear features with verbiage, pictures and videos that are user editable. Those features, combined with ease of setup, a state of the art remote I/O controls system and improved movement optimization significantly reduce the cycle times required for the complete inspection of almost any gear or gear tool as compared to other gear measurement systems on the market.
The 300GMS®P is equipped with a new ergonomically mounted operator workstation and an Advanced Operator Interface – both designed to greatly improve the operator’s effectiveness at every stage of the inspection process.
The Advanced Operator Interface puts a number of powerful tools right at the operator’s fingertips, including an environmental monitoring station to record temperature and humidity as well as video telephony, note pad and voice mail messaging capability, Gleason Connect® for enhanced remote diagnostic support, creation of standard work instructions, online training tools, multi-lingual communication and more.
