Mini Gears (Stockport) Ltd has made a huge investment in its Gear Grinding capacity with the arrival of a brand new Gleason Pfauter Profile Grinding Machine P600/800G, resulting in the company doubling its previous maximum grinding diameter.
As well as supporting its current customers with high performance gear requirements, this investment opens up new opportunities to take on contracts for larger gears requiring this finishing operation.
Mini Gears can now offer a gear grind only service for external grinding of Spur Gears, Helical Gears and Splines up to 800mm diameter, grades DIN/AGMA 3 to 4, maximum face width 600mm and from 1 to 15 Module.
