Gleason Offers Wobble Compensation in Gear Grinding
December 27, 2012
Conventional grinding cycles for cylindrical gears typically involve a significant amount of time dedicated to the manual alignment of the work piece. This time-consuming, yet critical step has a significant impact on the quality of the gear but can adversely affect production throughput. Gleason Wobble Compensation technology allows you to maintain and in some cases improve the quality of your grinding operations while simultaneously improving production throughput and your bottom line. Benefits include less time spent aligning workpieces, more time producing quality components, improved quality due to eccentricity and wobble compensation even after initial work piece alignment, software improvements such as visualization of eccentricity enhance operator performance and less precise fixtures required, reducing overall fixture cost. It is available for all Gleason profile grinding machines.
