New Gear Technology at EMO Hannover 2017By Randy Stott, Managing Editor
EMO is arguably the most important trade show when it comes to the introduction of machine tool technology, and this year's show — taking place September 18-23 in Hannover, Germany — promises not to disappoint. We've talked to a number of gear manufacturing technology providers to give you a sneak peak of what you can expect to see if you attend this year.
4 New Grinding Technologies by MTB
MTB has further developed its form grinding conversational software to allow for the advancements of On-Board Inspection, Wheel Dressing, and Automatic Setup Adjustments. With a new controls system and these new technological features, customers can extend the life of their grinder very cost-effectively. See these developments in Booth #1401 (Hall B) at GearExpo2017.
Single-Piece Flow Vacuum Furnace Streamlines Gear Production
New continuous vacuum furnace from SECO utilizes low-pressure vacuum carburizing in combination with 4-D® high-pressure gas quenching. Every part is heat-treated in an identical manner using the same process parameters and part movement, resulting in consistent, repeatable, high-quality parts.
PITTLER Power Skiving for highly efficient gear cutting
Power Skiving by pioneering PITTLER T&S allows for highest-quality internal and external gearings to be machined fast, flexible and at low tool costs. Based on its PV 5-axis turning center, PITTLER T&S offers Power Skiving for rotation-symmetrical components up to a diameter of 50" either as complete or individual machining solution.
