|- - - - Gleason CNC Hypoid Generators|
Yamamoto Engineering Co.,LTDiKomaki city,Aichi prefecturejand Ataka Machinery Co.,LTD(Tokyo) succeeded the CNC Retro-fit on Gleason Hypoid Generators.
In a private show at Yamamoto, most of automotive companies visited and saw their retro-fitted CNC Generator. Re-birth of this Generators make it possible of full automatic production line with loading system.
Retro-fitting of both companies are not only taking off mechanical parts from original machine, they added newly designed mechanical parts for accuracy in cut pinion. Data of cut pinion are as follows, pitch error = JIS 0 class, noise level decreased compare to original machine.
Not only accuracy improvements, it also makes it easy operation due to user friendly software, and could reduce the set up time.
Yamamoto and Ataka are proceeding to next model of #116 Generators on this CNC retro-fitting.
