Automated Gear Tooth Grinder
Bison Gear & Engineering Corp., a leader in the power transmission industry, has added an Automated Gear Tooth Grinder to their gear hobbing department. This new equipment offers a range of benefits that improve product quality and increase production capacity. This unique machine frees up capacity on four other machines, improves the quality of gear geometry, improves the cycle time, and effectively grinds spur and helical gears. At a time when product demand outpaces production capacity, adding this single piece of equipment will help make available nearly 40% more production time on four separate hobbing machines. In this way, the Automated Gear Tooth Grinder significantly increases total gear-cutting capabilities.
This machine is also capable of grinding the gear tooth profile, leading to an exacting, .00005 inch precision. This means that the teeth will continually mesh at the same point, appreciably reducing wear and noise. This aspect of the grinder proves of great benefit for customers who have noise-sensitive applications. Customers can also obtain increased gear motor efficiency from the fact that lower weight lubricant oils are needed when using a grind-finished gear. The Automated Gear Tooth Grinder produces a better finished product in ¼ of the time of a standard hobbing machine, significantly expediting the grinding process and improving the quality of the gear.
