Gear Technology, a leading international precision gear manufacturer, recently acquired a new, state-of-the-art gear chamfering machine to improve product quality and reduce the time-consuming task of chamfering gears.
"At Gear Technology we are always looking a better ways to serve our customers. With automated chamfering, we produce machined parts more cost-effectively, save a significant amount of time in the manufacturing process, which translates to faster product turnaround for our customers," Tom Marino, President of Gear Technology, said.
"This new high technology chamfering machine adds a higher level of operation efficiency and product quality from our company to our customers," Marino confirmed.
The custom-designed Senjo-Seiki PLC 101SAll chamfering machine has a unique stylus system that traces the inner and outer periphery of precision-machined components, producing a uniform and symmetrical chamfer with a superior finish, according to Marino. The machine accommodates work pieces up to 7.87" in diameter by 3.94" in length and in a variety of metals from aluminum to hardened aircraft steel alloys.
"Gear Technology is committed to process automation for maximum efficiency, from our advanced CNC gear hobbers and shapers to our automated chamfering and deburring systems," Marino said.
Gear Technology has been manufacturing quality precision gears for some of the world's largest and most widely recognized aerospace, military and commercial manufacturers since 1986. Today the company occupies over 16,320 square feet of modern manufacturing space with additional state-of-the-art, computer-controlled equipment.
"Our integrated manufacturing processes, including sophisticated job tracking systems, ensures products are produced with careful attention to the most intricate engineering detail and product specifications," Marino said. "The company also offers gear blanking, engineering consultation and sophisticated inventory management services."
