At this year’s MPT show,Gleason Corporation will showcase a wide array of new designs, manufacturing and inspection technologies for cylindrical and bevel gears. Highlights include: Closed Loop Hard Finishing Cell with integrated In-Process Laser Measuring, Gear Noise Detection and Analysis Systems, new Chamfer Hobbing Technology, and the latest release of KISSsoft Transmission Design Software.
The company will demonstrate the current KISSsoft Release 2019 with numerous new highlights: Among other things, KISSdesign, an instrument that allows intuitive concept design at system level, is now available.
SKF and KISSsoft have also created a new interface to simplify the gear development process. This interface enables engineers to perform calculations using the latest bearing data from SKF via a direct connection to the SKF cloud.

The manufacturability for Power Skiving can now also be evaluated in KISSsoft. After generating a special report with work piece and tool data, this report can be transferred to Gleason if required, which makes data exchange between the designer and the tool supplier much easier and less error-prone.
The interface between GEMS and KISSsoft provides an exchange of gear and system information between the two software packages. This allows the user to realistically evaluate and optimise every type of bevel and hypoid gear – with a Closed Loop between the design and manufacturing software.
The new GRSL Gear Rolling System with laser technology revolutionises gear measuring and sets a new standard for throughput where high-speed, high-volume testing is required. This compact gear inspection unit provides both double flank roll testing as well as analytical index and involute measurement as well as a new lead measurement feature on all teeth for full, analytical and functional in-process inspection.
The GRSL can be employed either as stand-alone or fully integrated, automated solution. Real time analytics and process trend analysis are clearly visible over the production run, allowing for automatic Closed Loop corrections on Gleason process equipment. Users can also sort by defect so gears for rework or scrap are tracked by characteristic.
Gear Noise Detection and Analysis with 300GMSL Multi-Sensor Technology
The latest 300GMSL Gear Metrology System combines standard tactile probing methods for cylindrical and bevel gears with the power of non-contact laser scanning of tooth flank form. The integration of laser scanning and associated 3D graphics with CAD interface considerably expands both the functionality and the range of applications for this machine platform and is ideally suited for thorough gear analysis and development.
Achieving a more complete analysis of process variable changes becomes much more intuitive with the high-resolution topographical surface mapping capability. A new host of tools for the detection and analysis of gear noise makes the 300GMSL an ideal solution for addressing this critical factor in today’s eDrive transmissions.
Integrated Chamfer Hobbing on the New Genesis 160HCD
The latest edition to the Genesis Gear Hobbing Machine family combines the state-of-the-art technology in gear hobbing with newly developed Chamfer Hobbing, which produces precise chamfers according to customer specifications, while minimising tool cost-per-piece.
Gleason will also demonstrate live the seamless integration of tool and machine workflows, reducing manual data input and minimising input errors, tracking every aspect of tool information from supplier to machine, to crib, to sharpening, to end of tool life.
New Workholding Solutions
Gleason presents two new workholding products: The new generation of expanding and contracting Hydraulic Production Arbors offers a host of benefits for many bore and shank clamping applications for cylindrical gears of all types and many bevel gears. New Modular Standard Workholding puts the performance benefits of Gleason’s latest quick-change workholding solutions into a system of standard, interchangeable modules.
Gleason will further present a host of new service offerings including the Gleason SPN Program (Safety-Productivity-Networking), a simple and economic field service alternative to a complete re-control of old Siemens 840D pl and many models of Gleason Metrology Inspection machines.
With the SPN Upgrade, machine owners regain system safety with updated virus and hacker protection, secure spare parts availability, and extend the control’s functionalities beyond its former capabilities.
