The March issue of Gear Production (a quarterly supplement to Modern Machine Shop) contains two examples of shops that were able to not only embrace, but optimize equipment and software to streamline production. Click the cover image above to access the digital edition and read about:

  • How a shop serving the mining industry eliminated multiple machining steps on large gears with a 6-meter profile grinder.
  • A shop that optimized its separate production paths for “cut-teeth-only” and “make-complete” gear jobs via scheduling and resource allocation software.

This issue also includes an overview of waterjet machining for gear production and new product coverage.

  • Speeding Up Splines

    Moving small- to medium-batch production from outsourced, dedicated hobbing operations to in-house, CNC multitasking machines helps job shops achieve quick turnarounds and flexibility in supplying splines for the heavy-vehicle industry. Inserted disc cutters make this transition possible.

  • Real-Time Tool Monitoring

    Machine operators have long dreamt of a process monitoring system that detects tool wear, and potentially catastrophic conditions and automatically compensates for changes in tool geometry after resharpening. Now that dream is a reality.

  • Big Machining for Big Machinery

    A significant investment in machining equipment, including an advanced five-axis, 6-meter profile grinding machine, is enabling this Southwestern shop to be more competitive at producing large-scale gears, shafts and other mining components.
