Gleasons Newest Threaded Wheel Grinder Delivers Faster Floor-to-Floor Times for Cylindrical Gears up to 300 mm
February 13, 2007—The 300 TWG from Gleason Corp. is designed to deliver fast floor-to-floor times for grinding of cylindrical gears with a diameter up to 300 mm.
The grinder uses high-speed, direct-drive spindles and advanced CNC controls with Gleason software to work compatibly with the multi-start grinding wheels. According to the companys press release, a multi-start grinding wheel can improve production rates up to five or ten times that of conventional single-start wheels.
In addition, the grinder can be equipped with a patented Gleason diamond-plated master dressing gear system that can dress a multi-start grinding wheel in a short time regardless of the number of starts, making it suitable for higher production environments.
Users can apply a compact, fully automatic CNC dressing unit located above the grinding head for conventional dressing with diamond-plated dressing discs. This is an option for job shop or prototype production environments.
Additional options include a high-speed, fully automated two-station ring loader with easy integration of a spin-dry station if needed.
