Gear cutting gets faster in a smaller footprint
JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corp.
2017 - PACE Award Winner
What: High-Speed Axis Synchronization with multipurpose machining capabilities
Innovation: JTEKT Toyoda has integrated the gear manufacturing work of five machines into one process. The result, incorporating a rotary table that took 10 years to develop, allows for high-speed synchronization to produce parts with greater accuracy, less cost and less waste.
First Customer: Torsen Machines
Judge's Citation: Improved productivity through high speed machining:skive, turn, mill, bore and drill in one set up which eliminates concentricity and run-out issues while maximizing floor space utilization. This machining center has revolutionized how gears are manufactured.
