PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Gleason Adds to Genesis Series
January 06, 2012
Gleason’s popular Genesis® series now includes 260H and 400H vertical gear hobbing machines for the production of spur and helical gears up to 260 mm in diameter, and 400 mm in diameter, respectively, and up to 700mm of axial travel to accommodate extra-long shafts. The new Genesis gear hobbing machines are particularly well-suited for the demands of today’s dry machining environment, featuring an exceptionally clean and uncluttered work chamber and a single-piece mineral cast polymer composite base/frame with superior damping and thermal stability. They are also among the most compact machines in their class, with a slim-profile design that makes it easier to both install the machines and integrate all styles of automation for cell/system application, as well as making it faster and more efficient for operators to manually load/unload parts and tooling.
