KAPP NILES Shows the ZE 800 and R&P Metrology's PM 750/1250 Portable Measuring Machine at the Gear Expo

The NILES ZE 800, along with the world’s first portable gear measuring machine, demonstrate flexibility and expandability at the KAPP NILES booth #2222 during the 2015 Gear Expo.

BOULDER, CO, – The Kapp Niles ZE 800 Profile Gear Grinder and the PM 750/1250 portable gear inspection system from RP Metrology GmbH will be demonstrated in the Kapp Niles Booth #2222 at AGMA‘s Gear Expo (Detroit, Oct 20-22.) The ZE 800 offers a compact yet highly productive solution for a range of applications. The machine is capable for 25 module (1 DP) external gears and is prepared for internal grinding using either CBN or dressable wheels. It will be shown with new software features including hob and worm grinding.

RP’s PM 750/1250 is the first portable gear checker/CMM with dual functionality for use in the lab or on the production floor. Its flexibility enables the measuring of larger gears on production machines that may not have on-board inspection. The design makes it moveable within the plant. The optional “docking station” with granite base and rotary table allows the PM 750/1250 to become a stand-alone, fully featured four axis generative gear inspection machine when not required for portable measurement.

KAPP CBN tools for direct grinding, and DIA dressers for grinding and honing are also featured at the booth, along with grinding experts, on hand to answer questions.
