Original Press Release:
Gleason Introduces the Genesis® 160TWG Threaded Wheel Grinder
Faster, more flexible hard finish grinding of cylindrical gears with diameters up to 160mm is now possible with introduction of the Gleason's new Genesis® 160TWG Threaded Wheel Grinder.
The 160TWG features an exceptionally high-speed cam-driven double grip loader that helps the 160TWG cut floor-to-floor times without the need for the considerably more complex designs available on the market.
The 160TWG speeds setup times by integrating a stock dividing sensor right into the grinding head, so stock dividing is done fast and automatically using the machine's NC motions, rather than relying on typical time-consuming manual adjustment.
In addition, the 160TWG gives users a host of dressing systems to choose from to meet the need for either maximum dressing speed, or maximum flexibility:
oFor high volumes and maximum productivity, a patented diamond-plated master dressing system is available, integrated into the clamping fixture and capable of dressing the latest multi-start grinding wheels in 10-20% less time than with conventional dressers.
oFor exceptional flexibility, a CNC Dressing Unit, with a single-flank dressing tool can be used, featuring new Gleason contour dressing software and precise axis motions to create any profile modification (e.g. tip or root relief, pressure angle modification or crowning) to the grinding wheel.
o A conventional CNC Dressing Unit is available with a double-flank dressing gear to simultaneously dress both flanks.
