New profile grinding machine boosts grinding capacityGleason Pfauter P600/800G grinding machine

At Stork Gears & Services, the experience of our engineers is complemented by our investment in advanced machinery facilities which will benefit our customers, including sharper accuracy and even faster response time. Our gear cutting department is recently enlarged with a high performance profile grinding machine for increasing accuracy and quality control: the Gleason Pfauter P600/800 G. This machine is one of the most advanced gear grinding machines available today and meets the growing need for faster production of the highest quality gears.

This gear grinding machine has been designed to grind straight and helical external and internal gearings on cylindrical workpieces with a diameter of up to 800mm.

Siemens CNC software is used to satisfy the most exacting demands and provides any gear tooth modifications. One of the great advantages of this new profile grinding machine is that the machine is able to grind without the necessity of pre-hobbing (till Modulus 10). This results in a significant time saving, so we can serve our customers even faster. 

Wind energy

The Gleason Pfauter P 600/800 G is particularly suitable for our wind industry customers as it conforms to their standards and quality requirements. These gearbox applications are subjected to high loads and suffer from high rates of wear under such demanding usage. High performance and reliabilty of the gear units are of great importance for our wind customers. With the newest Gleason technology we are able to manufacture high quality gears within the fastest possible time, which planetary gearboxes in wind turbines will strongly benefit from.

Stork Gears & Services recently invested in a high performance profile grinding machine for increasing accuracy and quality control: the Gleason Pfauter P600/800 G. It is expected that the profile grinding machine will be commissioned in April 2008. The Gleason Pfauter P 600/800 G is particularly suitable for our wind industry customers as it conforms to their standards and quality requirements.

This gear grinding machine has been designed to grind straight and helical external and internal gearings on cylindrical workpieces with a diameter of up to 800mm. Siemens CNC software is used to satisfy the most exacting demands and provides any gear tooth modifications. 

Advantages of the Gleason Pfauter P600/800 G

  • Time saving
    One of the great advantages of this new profile grinding machine is that the machine is able to grind without the necessity of pre-hobbing (till Modulus 10). This results in a significant time saving, so we can serve our customers even faster.
  • Maximum precision
    Direct measuring systems are integrated into the highly accurate anti-friction guides of the linear axs in combination with the absolute measuring systems of the linear axs. Movement is recorded exactly and any friction is avoided.

  • High precision
    A high-precision worktable is used in combination with a fully hydrostatic table bearing. This ensures consistent generation of highly accurate tooth form and modifications.

  • Consistent quality results
    An internal cooling system results in a constant temperature level for consistent quality results.
