New Gleason Phoenix(R) II 275G Bevel Gear Grinding Machine Puts Superior Performance In A Compact, Economical Package
May 20, 2002-- Gleason's latest addition to the PHOENIX® II product line is an advanced Bevel Gear Grinding Machine that utilizes the revolutionary monolithic column design. This concept reduces floor space and significantly reduces cycle times.
The PHOENIX ® II 275G accommodates gears with up to a 275mm pitch diameter, but with a machine footprint that measures just 2.3 x 3.4 meters (excluding the filtration unit). This compact design includes a self-contained electrical enclosure and hydraulic unit, helping make installation fast and simple.
The eccentric grinding wheel spindle feature allows fast grinding cycles, high accuracies, maximum efficiency and low grinding costs. The CNC controlled dresser provides accurate and repeatable results with maximum flexibility. The automatic stock dividing system further assures accurate and rapid grinding cycles.
Like the recently introduced PHOENIX® II 275 HC Bevel Gear Cutting Machine, the 275G features direct-drive spindle motors. Direct drive spindles eliminate gears and other mechanical elements as well as providing higher acceleration and deceleration rates. The 275G is available with either Siemens 840D or FANUC 160i Model B CNC controls.
