Ondrives takes gear measuring one step further
Ondrives has taken steps to ensure its gear inspection process is ever more reliable and precise with the recent purchase of an INOVA Gear Inspection Machine due to arrive with the company late April 2010, bought to measure all aspects of gear teeth using the newest CNC technology and which is accurate to Class 1.
"This latest investment shows Ondrives' continued commitment to the gear market and will take Ondrives to the next level in terms of reliability, customer service and reputation for being the best at what we do," states Managing Director, Ben Hinchliffe. "We hope this shows the level of dedication we have to our customers with regards to supplying the very best quality gears and gear products. The new machine will be housed in our recently completed, climate controlled extension purposely built for precision gear assemblies and gear inspection in a clean, stable environment."
This high accuracy machine is capable of measuring gears from as small as 5mm diameter. It can measure all different types of gears including spurs, helicals, bevels and worm wheels. This type of measurement system allows for useful feedback on gear cutting methods used to produce the gear as well as reporting on other aspects of gear measurement. This includes the pitch to pitch accuracy produced, cumulative pitch and radial runout to DIN 3964 along with the topography of a gear tooth and how well the gear form follows its intended shape depending on the accuracy class requested.
As a result of this, Ondrives is now more capable than ever of offering a more extensive range of expertise within the gears and power transmission markets, that has normally only been available in the high end aerospace industry. These higher levels of quality ensures customers will receive smoother, quieter, more accurate gears and gearing systems along with our famous red anodised gearboxes.
