Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has completed the development of a new gear shaping machine, the ST40A, capable of cutting a broad array of gears, including helical and cluster gears, with one system. The ST40A's significantly expanded range of cutting applications derives from the first application in Japan of NC programming technology to the relieving motion that prevents interference between the cutter and the workpiece. The new offering will make its international debut in the United States with a live demonstration of its capabilities at Gear Expo 2013, to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana, on September 17-19. The company intends to market the ST40A for a wide spectrum of gear cutting applications for various products including automobiles, construction machinery and aircraft.
