At JIMTOF 2022, from November 8 to 13, Gleason presents the latest gear design, manufacturing, and inspection systems in challenging times of transformation. Exhibits and live streams include KISSsoft’s design software release 2022, new gear chamfer cutting technologies, hard finishing of gears by superfinish honing; combination honing and polish grinding; hobbing; and gear skiving on one flexible platform, revolutionary gear metrology systems with laser scanning, sub-micron inspection and in-process gear inspection with integrated gear noise analysis.
KISSsoft Design and Transmission Software will present its latest 2022 release with a wealth of new features and functionalities including Smart Loop feedback to production machinery for fast and efficient design adjustments in the prototyping phase, integrating design into manufacturing and inspection processes.
Gleason’s 300GMSL Gear Metrology System features laser scanning for gear inspection at the speed of light, providing the data for unprecedented real-time analytics to speed up the development of complex gears, maximize efficiency, and minimize sound emissions in EV and other gearboxes.
The new 300GMS nano Gear Metrology System provides for gear inspection capability at submicron level, integrating highly sophisticated tools to analyze waviness for profile, lead and pitch, and to determine gear noise characteristics of e-drive gears.
Exhibits will be complemented by manufacturing and inspection demonstrations via live streams from global Gleason operations worldwide presenting new developments in Hard Power Skiving, medium-size bevel gear cutting, gear honing by Super Finishing for excellent surface finishes, threaded wheel grinding for gears with mirror-like surfaces and 100% in-process gear inspection.
On November 10, 2022 Gleason invites customers to the traditional Dr. Stadtfeld Day at Tokyo Big Sight, Floor East 9F, Room 909, starting 10:00 AM JST. Dr. Stadtfeld will present the latest developments for the future of bevel gear manufacturing, including flexible cutting with Superi-Ac Ecoblade RT, psychoacoustic noise reduction with MicroformTM, Coniflex Plus for strong and quiet e-drive differentials, bevel gear e-drive concepts and a brand-new process for fast cutting of differential gears.
Additionally, Gleason offers a very special event: Customers can meet Youtuber “Manufacturing Man” LIVE at the show and watch him explore the Gleason booth and exhibits on November 12, 2022. For those who cannot attend in person, Gleason will share the video right after its recording.
The Gleason team is looking forward to meeting customers in person at JIMTOF at Tokyo International Exhibit Center in Tokyo, Japan at Booth E6007 in East Hall 6.
