Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has developed a new gear grinding machine, the ZE15B, suitable for volume production of gears up to 150 millimeters (mm) in diameter. The machine’s high-speed and high-accuracy machining capability will enable further enhancement of productivity, coupled with shorter time not used in machining operation, such as time required for workpiece changes. The ZE15B offers even greater volume production capability than the company’s ZE15A gear grinding machine, which has earned a favorable reputation in the market since its introduction in 2004. In response to user demand for further space saving, installation space has been reduced by 10 percent compared to the ZE15A, to 3,980 millimeters (mm) in width and 4,000 mm in depth.
