The Phoenix 280G bevel gear grinding machine from Gleason is designed for high productivity and reliability in grinding bevel gears ranging to 280 mm in diameter. The grinder offers rapid setup, with the ability for all major setup functions to be completed without tools, including for the grinding wheel, coolant header and workholding. The coolant header has small blocks that can be exchanged by hand, while the grinding wheel can be released hydraulically.  The machine’s work chamber lacks rails, wires or pipes that can collect swarf, keeping it clean for low preventive maintenance, the company says.

The grinding machine includes an automatic stock divider mounted close to the work spindle to help ensure consistently high gear quality. According to Gleason, the unit automatically determines the tooth-slot position of the pre-finished gear to provide accurate and reliable stock division, helping to eliminate operator errors.

    One core competency that has undergone major change is gear production. Current European law mandates more strict noise control. To meet regulations set forth, Harley-Davidson motorcycles were required to reduce noise output. Anticipating that this would soon become standard in other coun-tries as well, the company modified its transmission to include gear ratio changes and high contact tooth geometry.
