New gear production machines for the UKHemel Hempstead-based Microprecision - a specialist in the field of precision component manufacturing - is now exclusively distributing a high precision and cost-effective range of CNC gear-production machine tools from South Korean company S&T Dynamics.
The range of gear production machines, which includes hobbers, shapers, shavers, deburrers and associated accessories, offers quality levels normally seen on top-of-the-range machines, but without the price premium.
The company's faith in the capabilities of the range is reflected in the fact that it uses two brand new S&T machines in its own 20,000sqft precision-manufacturing facility, which it uses not only for its own advanced production, but also for customer demonstrations.
Indeed, before making the decision to act as a distributor, Microprecision made sure the machines could meet the demands of the aerospace industry, with extensive inspection and testing of machined components before they were shipped. Once the machines and the manufactured components passed Microprecision's exhaustive quality control standards the decision to distribute the machines was given the green light.
The S&T Gear Manufacturing range comprises GHO-200, -350 and -500 CNC vertical gear hobbing machines, each with corresponding bed capacity. This is a powerful range of machines offering high-precision capabilities thanks to low surface pressure and high cutting resistance. With a Global User Data (GUD) resource, separate programming is unnecessary and gear production is easy - all that is required is the cutter specifications, the work piece specifications and the cutting conditions.
