Wind Turbine Gear Cutting
Wind turbine gear cutting accelerated by CNC refurbishment of gear shaper.
Advanced gear shaping software and motion control hardware from NUM has been used to bring an old manuall-controlled gear shaper machine up to modern day control standards. The five-axis Stanko machine is now controlled by a NUM Axium Power CNC System, using electronic gearbox techniques to synchronise the rotary cutter, gear balnk and stoking axes. It also incorporates an innovative programmble replacemet for stocking axis, which reduces product changeover time from hours to minutes - significatnly improving productivity.
