Gear Industry Origin StoriesOver on the blog, Gear Technology technical editor Chuck Schultz has been exploring various gear industry "Origin Stories," with tales of how some of the gear industry's veterans got their start in gearing. These are great stories for those of you who've been in the industry for awhile. You probably know most of these individuals. But they're also great for those of you who are relatively new to the industry. It's amazing to see how a seemingly unimportant decision or assignment early in one's career could lead to a lifetime in gearing.

Universal gear grinding for small diameter, longer shafts
Ideal for aerospace and job shop industries grinding longer shafts with smaller diameters, the new small footprint LGG 400 M from Liebherr combines three technologies -- generating grinding, profile grinding, and internal grinding -- in one machine. Permits generating grinding with lead modifications for noise- and load-optimized gears.
PRÄWEMA improves the surface quality of internal gearings
Just like the proven gear honing technology for external gearings, PRĂ„WEMA's new honing technology for internal gearings fulfills the highest standards for surface and profile quality of toothed parts so that ring gears can now be machined in hitherto unequaled productivity and manufacturing quality.
