The Gleason P400ES electronic shaper is a new generation of gear shaping machine. Offering the latest developments in shaping technology, it is the most recent acquisition to Ondrives’ manufacturing capabilities.
The P400ES uses an electronic helical guide rather than a traditional mechanical one therefore eliminating costs, reducing lead times and improving quality, efficiency and flexibility. Two or more gears can be setup together thereby increasing capacity or capability options.
It is able to shape both spur and helical (internal and external) gears with a work piece diameter up to 600mm. 0.5Mod to 8Mod gears are available as standard and 100mm+ face widths are possible using shuttle shaping.
Crowning and lead modifications are available in addition to short run outs and are possible with and without the need for reliefs. Furthermore, compound gears can be shaped in a single process allowing for optimal concentricity between the parts.
Of particular interest to our customers will be the ability to shape internal splines and helical splines to extremely high accuracies in both pitch and run out, as well as giving high profile accuracy and the benefits of lead modification and crowning.
The increased benefits and capabilities the P400ES offers will help ensure Ondrives continued commitment to providing high quality products and services to its customers.
