Bevel Gear Lapping System

Description

Gleason Corp's revolutionary SmartLAP technology for lapping bevel gear sets yields unprecedented productivity, control and data collection.

This patent-pending technology redefines the limits of the gear lapping process, offering better quality and higher productivity than was previously possible.

Available on the Gleason 600HTL Turbo Lapper Hypoid Lapping Machine (both new and as a field retrofit), the SmartLAP system combines a unique, yet simple gear spindle design with real-time motion-error measurement. It brings dynamic lapping forces under active servo control. The instantaneous tooth-to-tooth forces are no longer just a function of incoming part quality and passive physics but are instead actively modified by this smart mechatronic system to consistently improve DIN/AGMA part quality.

These enhanced dynamics also enable higher productivity without compromising quality.

Pinion speeds and gear torques can now be increased by 30% or more without introducing the spacing errors that previously prevented faster cycles.

The system also compensates for workholding run-out errors, making production less sensitive to tooling conditions.

In addition, the tester-like data that is collected is displayed during the lapping process, giving users unprecedented real-time insight into the process. Aimed at high-volume automotive-size gear set production, this technology erases old boundaries and sets the new world standard for bevel gear lapping.
