New Gear Production, Workholding and Inspection Solutions at GEAR EXPO 2015

Gleason will introduce advanced machines, tooling and global customer support services covering a wide array of processes for the complete production and inspection of all types of bevel and cylindrical gears at GEAR EXPO 2015, October 20-22 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI.

On display at booth 1017 will be:

  • Genesis 200GX Threaded Wheel Grinding Machine

The 200GX, the latest addition to the Genesis series, is designed for automotive gearbox parts and more. The two spindle concept is engineered to combine maximum productivity with minimized idle and set-up times. Fast software-guided set-up of the machine allows operators to set up the machine from one workpiece to another in just 20 minutes using only one tool. Productivity enhancements include "First Part Cycle" - fully automatic workflow after set-up until grinding the first workpieces, and the ability to interface with Gleason GMS machines via QR codes. Easily accessible machine components help make maintenance simple while standard dimension grinding wheels and dressing tools allow operators to use their existing tools. This energy efficient small footprint machine is designed to meet the needs of customers in high-productivity high-quality environments.

  • Gleason 300GMS P Analytical Gear Inspection System

The system is designed to operate in production environments while yielding reliable measurement results. "A 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," said a company spokesperson.

Thermal fluctuations normally associated with shop floor environments are proactively compensated for as well, allowing for reliable inspection results, stated the spokesperson. The system identifies and applies a compensation for factory floor influences in real time.

Designed to perform as a turn-key gear inspection system in the manufacturing environment, it is engineered for demanding applications in aerospace, automotive and smaller power transmission industries.

Booth visitors will also be introduced to a number of other Gleason products, technologies and services, including:

  • Cutting tools for the production of cylindrical and bevel gears

For cylindrical gear production, the company will feature hobs, form relieved milling cutters, solid carbide hobs, shaper cutters, chamfering and deburring tools, shaving cutters, honing tools, coated diamond and CBN grinding wheels, diamond dressing wheels and diamond dressing rolls. The company will feature recent advancements in gear hobbing technology, including G90, a tooling material designed to close the performance gap between HSS materials and tungsten carbide. An assortment of power skiving tools will be on display.

The bevel cutting tool display will feature advanced new bevel gear cutting tools for cutting and grinding straight, spiral and hypoid bevel gears. "Of particular note is the Pentac Plus -RT, which can be built faster and more precisely than stick blade cutter systems of the past," said the spokesperson. "With blade seating stiffness equal to the high stiffness of our Pentac Plus, this new system offers superior surface finish, tool life and cycle time."

  • Advanced workholding solutions

Gleason designs and produces a complete range of quick-change, tool-less workholding equipment for bevel gear, cylindrical gear and non-Gleason production machines. These systems are designed to reduce set-up and changeover times for gearing applications up to 600 mm in diameter. Quik-Flex Plus, Gleason's next generation of modular, quick-change workholding systems that requires a single tool, will be on display for the first time.

Also on display will be its line of hydraulic workholding solutions. The holding force, accuracy and contamination free design are engineered for dry gear processing applications. In addition, the company reported that its stir-able modular workholding designs allow off spindle assembly and truing to reduce changeover time as well as the amount of total runout in the fixture.

  • Gleason Global Services

Gleason will feature its aftermarket service and support capabilities as well as its range of machine rebuilding and re-controls now offered for all types of Gleason machines. Its customer training classes cover all aspects of gear design, production and inspection.

  • Gleason Plastic Gears

Gleason offers plastic gear design and injection molded plastic gears, including helical gears, spur gears, planetary gears and internal gears.

  • Distech Systems

Distech Systems specializes in the design and manufacture of factory automation systems serving a variety of customers in the automotive and other industries.
