Improved reliability and precision at Winbro

Improved reliability and precision at Winbro The Winbro Group is integrating gear technology into its machine tools to improve precision and reliability. Supplied by Harmonic Drive, the gear systems have replaced traditional gearbox and motor assemblies and let Winbro reduce the size and weight of tool heads, reduce the effects of backlash and improve positional accuracy and repeatability. Based in Coalville, Winbro produces custom built machining centres for manufacturers of gas turbines for the aerospace and power generating industries. Depending on the application, Winbro manufactures machining centres that use either Nd:YAG lasers or EDM technology for precision drilling applications. Lasers generally have the advantage of faster drilling speeds, while EDM has the advantage of improved metallurgical results and also can drill holes where direct line of sight is not possible. In each case, the company has largely standardised on the use of Harmonic Drive gear technology to move and position tool heads and work pieces.
