Gleason introduces the 300GMSL multi-sensor inspection machine, providing the capabilities of four instruments on one platform. Designed for manufacturers of automotive, aircraft and other like-sized gears, the machine offers a single, compact, reliable and easy-to operate inspection solution to apply the most desirable gear measurement and analysis methods for both R&D and production applications, the company says.

The 300GMSL can perform tactile probing to support traditional gear feature data collection on spur and helical gears as well as spiral and straight bevel gears ranging to 300 mm in diameter. The platform also supports non-contact, full form laser scanning for a range of workpieces to support gear development in which large amounts of data need to be collected faster than possible with conventional tactile probing. Optional inspection features include surface finish measurement and Barkhausen Noise Analysis.

The integration of advanced technology such as laser scanning expands the functionality and application range of this platform. The laser scanning probe is said to deliver faster data collection speeds than conventional probing methods with comparable accuracy, making the 300GMSL useful for R&D applications such as rapid prototyping and reverse engineering. The machine is also well-suited to operations requiring high-speed topography inspection, non-gear inspection capabilities, or the ability to inspect soft, compliant materials such as plastic gears.

The optional Advanced Operator Interface provides powerful tools including video telephony, notepad and voicemail messaging capability along with QR/bar code reading. The user-friendly, Windows-compatible GAMA application software suite provides users a highly intuitive interface with simple input screens for programming workpiece data.
