Gear grinding is currently attracting a lot of attention, especially in the production of components for electric drives. Production planners are demanding new solutions for a perfect surface that assures their necessarily smooth running at high speeds and heavy torque loads. To see how a high-tech niche machine builder implements these requirements, one need look no further than EMAG SU “tooth flank grinding” machines.
The gear grinding machine specialist, based near Bologna Italy, developed the G 160 model, for example, which features a special “virtual” axis concept for microscopically near-perfect surfaces. At the same time, the integrated material handling technology keeps the cycle times down to a minimum. Know more
