AGMA’s Motion + Power Technology (MPT) Expo is a biennial trade show—running this year from October 17–19 at Huntington Place in Detroit—designed to serve the gear and power transmission industry, representing the full spectrum of professionals involved in the life of a gear, gearbox, or other power transmission device—from design to manufacturing, testing, heat treating, and more. You will find equipment and materials suppliers to make gears; gear and gear drive manufacturers; and every imaginable industry-adjacent supplier from software to tooling, lubrication to bearings, and much more.
A newly developed measuring probe now allows Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH the possibility of precise corrective measurement in the gear shaping machine. The measuring probe sits directly on the tool spindle and is therefore in the same coordinate system as the pinion type cutter itself. This reduces inaccuracies which might arise due to a tool change or turning a workpiece and leads to considerably higher quality and process reliability.
