Gleason Corporation presents powerful analysis systems that revolutionize gear inspection with its 300GMSL Multi-Sensor Gear Inspection System and the GRSL Gear Rolling System with integrated Laser Scanning at the Control Show in Stuttgart/Germany.
The versatile platform of Gleason’s 300GMSL Gear Metrology System provides the classic tactile probing methods for inspecting conventional gear characteristics on spur and helical cylindrical gears as well as straight, spiral and hypoid bevel gears with a diameter of up to 300 mm. In addition, the new inspection system allows non-contact laser sensor scanning of tooth flanks to support gear development. Complete topography data can be recorded far more rapidly than with conventional tactile probing, with comparable results – depending on the tooth flank surface.
The integration of laser scanning and associated 3D graphics with CAD interface considerably expand both the functionality and the range of applications for this machine platform. The new option makes the 300GMSL the ideal solution for research and development applications, for both prototype and production parts or when reverse engineering is required. Further options include surface finish measurement or Barkhausen noise analysis to inspect grinding burn.
The 300GMSL Inspection System is also an ideal fit for rapid measurement of topography in regular production operation and satisfies the increasingly stringent requirements on gear inspection. Compliant, soft materials (such as plastic gears, for example) can be inspected without sustaining damage. Multiple technologies combined in one single machine platform reduce operating costs, annual maintenance, certification costs and space requirements.
The GRSL Gear Rolling System with Laser allows in-process gear inspection and sets a new standard for throughput where high-speed, high-volume testing is required. It provides both, double flank roll testing as well as analytical index and involute measurement on all teeth in a matter of seconds.
This new technology is available in manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic configuration depending on the needs of the customer. The index and involute measurements are analyzed using Gleason GAMA Gear Automated Measurement and Analysis Software which allows operators to see common charting between a GMS Analytical Inspection Machine and the GRSL Gear Rolling System.
