Gleason Corporation has announced the introduction of the 100S Gear Shaping Machine, featuring a stroke rate of up to 3,000 strokes per minute.
The 100S is ideally suited to small-face width gears, including spur and helical gears, both internal and external, as well as automotive synchro rings and tapered gears. It is a compact and robust machine requiring significantly reduced floor space. The 100S is easily moved, quickly installed and powered up.
Some of the significant features of the 100S include high productivity and a static and dynamically stiff machine concept, aided by a twin-bearing crankshaft design.
