ROCHESTER, New York, USA – Gleason Corporation today announced the completion of the Gear Solutions Forum at its Gleason-Pfauter facility in Ludwigsburg Germany, April 1-3, 2014.  Gleason hosted approximately 600 visitors from 30 countries over a three day period with a comprehensive display of the latest technologies in gear production and a series of leading experts from the gear industry and academia presenting on significant trends and developments in gearing.

Introduced were brand new machine developments and technologies including the Genesis® 200GX double spindle threaded wheel gear grinder, the Genesis® 210HCD gear hobber with dual loading stations and integrated chamfering and deburring, and the 100S small gear shaping machine, which was dry shaping with capability up to 3000 strokes/minute.  Demonstrated were new gear production processes like Power Skiving, on-board part inspection using Gleason's own GAMA metrology software, the new Phoenix®280G bevel gear grinding machine and the 300GMS analytical gear inspection machine.  In total were more than 15 gear production machines providing live demonstrations, along with the industry's largest and most diverse offering of gear cutting tools and workholding.  Complementing products and processes were service and support capabilities, including machine rebuilds and retrofits, training and service programs.

Joining Gleason at the event was a host of partners and technology providers to the gear industry who exhibited at the Forum.  This included companies providing software, heat treatment, coatings and machining solutions.

Also introduced for the first time was "Gleason 4.0", Gleason's vision and systems architecture for digital manufacturing for the future.  This topic stimulated significant interest from the attendees as they consider the next major step in design and production of gear systems.
