True Gear & Spline Increases Grinding Capacity With New Niles ZP 12
June 26, 2015
True Gear& Spline Ltd. recently added CNC gear profile grinding to their machining capabilities with their newly installed Niles ZP 12 gear grinder.
The recently redesigned Niles ZP 12 will allow True Gear & Spline to grind larger gears with higher tolerance and increased speed, expanding their services to their customers in the machinery, mining, energy, oil and gas, and prototyping sectors.
True Gear & Spline serves a worldwide customer base from their 20,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility located in Cambridge, Ontario. In 1998, they purchased a Niles ZSTZ 315 gear grinder that still exists in the facility. In 2008 they became ISO 9001 certified.
Historically, True Gear & Spline made gears to AGMA class 8; using the older Niles machines, they achieved AGMA 10. Today, AGMA 11 and 12 are routinely achieved on the Niles ZP 12.
“Continued growth and investing in the latest technology has always been a driving force at
True Gear & Spline,” said vice president Mark Bizjak. “This latest purchase is in keeping with our commitment to accommodate our customers with any type of gear.”
True Gear’s Niles ZP 12 will allow them to grind internal and external gears up to 1.2 meters in diameter. Dual dressers reduce dressing time and gear inspection on the machine. The new ZP 12 design, optional software makes worm grinding possible too.
“We have had our ZSTZ 315 in production for close to 20 years and look forward to many more years of using the advanced technology offered by the ZP 12 machine,” Bizjak said. “We have had positive experiences with the Kapp Niles staff, and with their sales representative, John Manley of Machine Tool Systems, Inc.”
