It was standing room only in the Gleason’s spacious auditorium during President and CEO John Perrotti’s remarks opening the 2015 Gear Solutions Forum September 23-24 at the company’s headquarters in Rochester, New York. More than 300 attendees toured Gleason’s manufacturing facility, mingling in areas such as the Bevel Gear Village—blade sharpening, testing, grinding, etc.—and the Cylindrical Gear Village, with displays devoted to power skiving, cutting tools, rack milling and plastic gears. Visitors glimpsed the future at the Research & Development Technology Exhibit, with exhibits on bevel gear software, soft and hard machining processes, and ultra-high bevel gear reducers.

Education was the emphasis during two days of lectures, addressing subjects such as Industry 4.0, the Internet of Manufacturing Things, and the potential of virtualization in gear production by Gleason experts along with representatives of RWTH Aachen University (WZL), The Ohio State University, Ilmenau University of Technology, System Insights, Smart Manufacturing Technology, Penn State University and the Rochester Institute of Technology.
