Sub-micron gear inspection machine launched – Metrology and Quality News

At CONTROL, Gleason will showcase its latest developments to meet the challenges of extreme gear quality and minimum gear noise. With the ability to measure gears at the submicron level, run advanced ripple analysis, and evaluate gear noise using the most advanced analytical tools, the 300GMS nano is perfectly suited to support the production of automotive electric motors with minimum noise requirements.

The 300GMS nano covers the full range of modern gear inspection capabilities, as well as fine pitch gear inspection and CMM measurement. With the 300GMS nano, users are now able to measure surface finish at the submicron level with a skidless probe, meeting the most common roughness parameters as defined by DIN, ISO, ANSI and others, analyze the ripple for profile, pitch and pitch, and run noise analysis with sophisticated software tools. The 300GMS nano is equipped with a high precision SP25 3D scanning probe with a wide range of styli, including its own stylus calibration library. The 300GMS nano also incorporates 3D measurement and analysis capabilities typically offered by a CMM.

GMS offers a wide range of surface roughness measurements

In addition to gears and other rotating parts, the 300GMS nano inspects a wide range of gear cutting tools, including hobs, power skiving, shaping and shaving cutters, bevel cutting blades, most spindles and cog cutters. The system comes with Gleason’s patented AOP (Advanced Operator Pendant), which allows users to record video memos, leave voice messages, monitor environmental conditions, read helm and code information QR directly in the system and supports remote services.

The machine uses the latest GAMA 3.2 applications and control software easily connecting to customers’ servers. GAMA also includes SPC data acquisition software and Gleason Connect remote support services.

In-process gear inspection

The Gleason GRSL gear bearing system with integrated laser technology offers revolutionary in-production gear inspection up to 100% of gear production, setting a new standard for applications requiring high-speed, high-speed testing. large volume. It provides both double flank roll test and laser inspection to provide measurement on all teeth in just seconds. GRSL is available in manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic configuration depending on the manufacturer’s requirements and measures external spur gears up to 250 mm in diameter and ranging from 0.4 to 7.2 modules. It provides analytical output on all teeth for profile, lead and index with functional features such as notch detection, total composite variation, total runout, tooth-to-tooth average, DOP , the average circular thickness of the tooth and more. Capabilities also include built-in gear noise analysis tools, making the GRSL ideally suited to meet the demands of automotive electric motors.

Closed loop measurement

Gleason’s closed loop allows both the GMS Series and GRSL to send inspection results directly to Gleason production machines, including stripping, grinding and lapping machines, for automatic correction of variables production without operator intervention.
