Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America will proudly be showcasing two machines at Gear Expo 2013. Making its debut in North America, a revamped design of the ever popular Model ST40 advanced programmable lead guide shaper will demonstrate the capability to program internal and external gears with crown or taper through the use of a newly developed NC relieving mechanism. The ST40A machine is also equipped with a quick return stroke function which greatly shortens machining times for wide face width gears. This machine will be dry cutting one component of a cluster gear. Additionally at Gear Expo, Mitsubishi will be demonstrating an automated gear cell which includes a palletized conveyor paired with a Model GE15A dry-cut gear hobbing machine. On the GE15A, Mitsubishi will demonstrate a timing function which is beneficial for skive hobbing or timing a gear to another feature on the workpiece. Also exhibiting their capabilities in the Mitsubishi booth will be Federal Broach and Machine Company. Mitsubishi and Federal will have industry experts on hand throughout Gear Expo to offer solutions to the many manufacturing challenges that attendees will bring.
