Project Summary Project Information

Gleason is an industry leader in gear manufacturing. Since the late 1800s, Gleason has been providing customers with quality, accurate, rugged gear cutting machines. Being located in Rochester, NY, Gleason is a great company for RIT to work with.

A gear loader jaw assembly is responsible for holding a gear blank while being transferred in and out of the work chamber of the Gleason machine. This is typically part of an automation option for high production use at companies such as Ford and GM. Currently Gleason inspects individual components of the gear jaws but does not inspect the final assemblies. This has led to errors at the customer level causing damage to machines and downtime.
