State of the Gear Industry Perspectives takes an in-depth look at the challenges and opportunities in gear manufacturing today and in the future. Our first installment online is an interview with Udo Stolz, vice president of sales and marketing at Gleason Corporation.
JTEKT recently demonstrated a new double-disc horizontal grinder that simultaneously grinds both sides of silicon wafers to +/- 1 micron from as-sliced condition. The DXSG320 performance represents a massive improvement in accuracy and productivity over the single-spindle vertical grinders common in the chip industry today which grind to 3-4 microns, according to the company.
STUDER focuses on universality and speed with the uniLoad loading system. The automatic loading system enables users of the S31 and S33 external cylindrical grinding machines to increase quality and productivity.
The Machine Training Center (MTC) of Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH in Kempten offers bright training rooms equipped with the latest technology the world of gear making has to offer including an LC 280 gear cutting machine with ChamferCut device, an LGG 280 gear grinding machine and a WGT measuring machine.
Focus on machine perfection, automation and service

Integrated manufacturing solutions for machining processes from the blank to the finished workpiece are the focus of the DVS TECHNOLOGY GROUP's trade fair appearance at the world's leading trade fair for metalworking IMTS 2022 in Chicago.
IMTS 2022 will host a variety of technologies that will set the tone for manufacturing innovation in the years to come. At the forefront is the integration of data for process control, providing outstanding solutions to manufacturers. Wenzel America and Nidec’s collaboration started with the mutual drive for serving their customer with excellence through data management.
Forming tools are expensive, often made from carbide and tool steel. Carbide grinding is often the first choice today because customer requirements have increased and continue to increase in terms of complexity, dimensional accuracy and reproducibility. Apart from that, production must also be significantly more economical.
System-supplier Klingelnberg will be back at AMB (Booth C41, Hall 5), where it will be highlighting solutions for smooth-running gearboxes. The exhibit will feature the Höfler Cylindrical Gear Grinding Machine Speed Viper, the Klingelnberg Precision Measuring Center P 40 and the newly developed Höfler Cylindrical Gear Roll Testing Machine R 300.
