Now roll testing and single flank testing of bevel, angular bevel and parallel-axis gears with diameters up to 2,500 mm can be completed much faster and easier than ever before, with introduction of the Gleason 1000T, 1600T, 2000T and 2500T Universal Gear Testers.
The new series of Gleason 6-axis fully CNC Universal Gear Testers are the only products in their class that can perform the full range of pattern checking and single flank (SFT) motion transmission error testing on any bevel gear set with the widest possible range of angles. Unlike competitive products, the Gleason Universal Testers are equipped with a CNC-controlled pivoting gearhead that can swing from 0° to 180°, thus enabling it to precisely mesh pinion and ring gears of varying angles and types, and even cylindrical gears – both parallel axis and off-angle.
