Star SU to Showcase The Latest in Gear Manufacturing Solutions at 2019 Motion + Power Technology Expo

Hoffman Estates, IL., September 17, 2019 — Star SU LLC announces it will be attending the 2019 Motion + Power Technology Expo in Detroit, MI, from October 15-17, 2019. Produced by the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) and the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), the expo connects the top manufacturers, suppliers, buyers, and experts in the mechanical and gear power, electric power, and fluid power industries.

The Star SU Booth 4013 will be presenting advanced manufacturing solutions from both machine tools and cutting tools.

Machine Tool Solutions

Star SU will introduce our hobbing and shaping machine portfolio through the newly created company Samputensili CLC S.r.l. Star SU will interactively display the CLC 260 H and CLC 500 H – two high performance modular horizontal gear hobbing/milling machines, which can be customized for any type of gear, shaft and worms up to a total length of 5000 mm. 

The NEW Star NXT linear CNC tool and cutter grinding machine sharpens both straight and spiral gash hob designs up to 8” OD x 10” OAL. With a small footprint and maximized grind zone, the NXT also sharpens disk, shank and helical type shaper cutters, Scudding cutters, and a wide range of round tools, making it a versatile tool room machine.

In addition, our complete library of gear manufacturing machinery solutions will be available, including the Samputensili SG 160 SKYGRIND - the first gear dry grinding machine in the world with a patented process. A ground-breaking concept that totally eliminates the need for cutting oils during the grinding of gears after heat treatment with a significant reduction in the cost of consumables and a considerable improvement of environmental impact.
