Wenzel GearTec develops WGT 280 for small gear measurement

Wenzel GearTec's gear measuring machine range now includes the WGT 280. The WGT 280 has been specially developed for small gears and rotationally symmetrical parts up to a maximum diameter of 280 mm.

During the development of the WGT 280 Wenzel focused on one of its core competencies. The base plate and linear guides are made from impala dark granite and finished by hand. The combination of granite technology and precise air suspension makes the gear measuring machine a durable and highly accurate measuring system according to VDI/VDE 2612/13 group 1. Wenzel GearTec WGT 280's compact construction and small footprint facilitate its integration into existing processes. The easy to access measuring volume allows a simple loading and system operation. The precise rotary table can be loaded with parts up to 50 kg weight. The Renishaw SP 600 scanning probe allows the measurement of gears starting with a module of 0.5 as standard. The gear measuring machine can be equipped with a tail stock for the accurate measurement of shafts. The WGT 280 allows measurements in a Z range of 500 mm. A specially developed controller for gear metrology provides optimal 4-axis control and high measuring performance, while the WGT gear measuring software leads the user intuitively through different input tasks to enter parameters for part, measurement and analysis. The user is additionally supported by various graphics. The basic TGear package can be individually extended by different modules for the measurement and analysis of different types of gears and shafts. This allows optimal set-up for specific applications.
