New gear grinderOndrives has recently taken receipt of a new gear grinding machine which enables it to gear grind to precise measurements. Managing director Andy Higgs says that Ondrives is already known for its standard precision gear range, as well as the many specials and customs it produces, and this new machinery will take the company to next level in terms of precision for demanding applications such as aerospace.
The Niles-Kapp ZE400 profile grinding machine produces gears to quality grade 3, DIN 3961/3962/3963 (ISO 3/AGMA 14+) gears from 0.5 Mn to 15Mn (50Dp - 1.69Dp), with 0-400mm tip diameters available as standard. This machine is also equipped for process measurement/inspection. Ondrives manufacture spur gears, parallel and crossed helical gears, anti-backlash spur gears, pinion shafts, racks, spline shafts, clamps and bushings, worms, wheels and bevel gears. These are all currently produced to DIN 7 (ISO 7/AGMA Q10) within the standard catalogue range.
Ondrives will be exhibiting a range of these gears along with its in-house produced gearboxes at several different exhibitions throughout the year, starting with Subcon in June.
