Gleason Corporation introduces the 200GX and 260GX Threaded Wheel Grinding Machines, its latest addition to the highly successful Genesis® series. The twin spindle concept combines maximum productivity with minimum idle and set up times. Fast, easy software-guided setup of the machine allows users to set up the GX Series from one workpiece to another in just 20 minutes using a single tool.
"First Part Cycle" features a fully automatic workflow from setup to grinding the first workpiece. In addition, the machine is equipped with latest innovative technology features such as: Twist controlled grinding, automated process data proposal, variable rate method (VRM) for a favorable surface structure and polish grinding for an excellent surface finish. The ability to directly interface with Gleason GMS® Analytical Gear Inspection machines via simple scanning of QR codes further enhances the productivity of the GX Series. In addition, the GX series productivity is further enhanced when paired with automation solutions from Gleason Automation Systems.
Easily accessible machine components make maintenance simple and efficient while standard dimension grinding wheels allow you to use your existing tools along with precision dressing tools from Gleason. All of this in an energy efficient, small footprint machine designed to meet the needs of customers in high-productivity, high-quality environments.
