Ground Gears

Gibbs Gears are well equipped with the latest accurate gear grinding machinery and experienced engineers for the finishing of hardened precision ground gears. Our gear grinding processes are usually required when very quite gears are required.

When a gear is heat treated, there is a lot of movement in the material due to it being subjected to enormous heat, normally above 1000 degrees celcius. If the gear’s flanks are not ground after heat treatment, then they will not be perfectly silent due to these irregularities. We utilize our new “Wenzel WGT 280 and LH 54 CNC” gear checking machine, to ensure perfect results every time when setting our gear grinding machinery and to give evidence of what is achieved by way of certified graphs.

Our graphs are traceable to NAMAS standards, so you can be assured that if you want a certain specification of gear accuracy and our graph says it meets the criteria, then it is what is says it is. We have a “Reischauer” gear grinding cell which includes 1 x Reishauer 300E CNC, 3 manual, including a slow spindle speed model for aerospace type gears. We also have a Gleason P90G gear grinder, capable of using pre-formed or dress able cbn grinding wheels, worm threads.
