Gleason Introduces Titan 1200H Hobbing Machine
December 29, 2011
Gleason has introduced the Titan 1200H Hobbing Machine, the first of a new series of Titan hobbers designed for larger cylindrical gears with diameters ranging from 800 mm to 6,400 mm, and modules up to 40 mm. The new Titan 1200H Hobbing Machine, for workpiece diameters up to 1,200 mm, features a new machine design that optimizes chip disposal for highly productive dry machining, while at the same time greatly improving operator accessibility to the work area to help reduce non-productive time for part and tool changeover. Non-productive time is further reduced through use of a fast, powerful automated ring loader, and Gleason's X-Pandisk workholding system, which automatically clamps and centers parts even as heavy as 2,000 kg. The new machine design also delivers the exceptional system stiffness, rigidity and damping characteristics required for today's most demanding productivity and quality requirements, with a combination of a composite steel machine bed and new patent-pending combination slideway/anti-friction guideway design. In addition, the Titan 1200H's new operator interface, based on the latest Siemens 840D Solution Line CNC control system, enables any machine operator to more quickly and efficiently set up and operate the machine for maximum performance. The new Titan series is also designed to help customers meet the need for greater sustainability, with the latest drive and motor technology and software capabilities to closely monitor and manage energy consumption.
