Gleason Corporation recently showcased its latest gear manufacturing technologies at its Gear Solutions Forum at the Gleason-Pfauter facility in Ludwigsburg, Germany. More than 360 visitors from 21 countries around the world took advantage of the opportunity to see first-hand the latest machine and process technologies, as well as the supporting cutting tools, workholding and automation products and services in early June.
In addition to the hardware and process technologies, Gleason also offered a seminar each day concentrated on specific markets and technologies including "Efficient Machining of Automotive Gears,"High-Production Machining of Large Gears" and "Machining of Bevel Gears / Gear Cutting Tool Measurement".
Udo Stolz, Gleason's Vice President of Worldwide Sales, said "We typically showcase our products and services at trade shows throughout the year, throughout the world. Given the number of new technologies that Gleason has launched in recent months, we did not want to wait until the next major trade show to introduce them to our customers. The overwhelming response in terms of customer attendance and the strong positive feedback we have received tells us that we made the right decision. As we displayed advanced technologies for nearly every major gear production technology it certainly reinforced our company's position as a total gear solutions provider."
