The Gleason family of gear shaping machines has been designed by combining the best features of the Gleason and Pfauter machines along with new innovations. The basic concepts incorporate many modular parts and assemblies. This reduces the number of parts which increases the reliability of the parts and the assembly process. The result are operator and maintenance friendly machines.
