Mahr Federal introduces a Class 1 universal gear tester that provides fast, accurate analysis for a range of gear and gear tool applications on gears with ODs as large as 400 mm. The system is part of the GMX series and incorporates a four-axis PowerPC controller with automatic tailstock and high-accuracy 3D scanning probe head. The system provides a solution for both universal and specialized gear manufacturing processes.
The series is designed to provide maximum precision and flexibility of gear and form measurement in a single system. Equipped for both stand-alone shop floor or gear lab applications, the system can also be fully networked for efficient transfer of measuring results and machine corrections. The series provides Class 1 accuracy in accordance with VDI/VDE 2612/2613 Group 1.
The tester provides fully automatic inspection of straight and helical cylindrical gears; spiral and hypoid bevel gears; crown gears; cylindrical worm shafts; conical cylindrical gears; segment gears; shaving cutters and hobs; pinioned-shaped cutters; beveloid gears; synchronous gears; 3D geometry; and form and positional measurements, diameters and distances.
