Microprecision of Hemel Hempstead is now exclusively distributing CNC gear-production machine tools from South Korean company S&T Dynamics.
The high precision and cost-effective gear production machines, which includes hobbers, shapers, shavers, deburrers and associated accessories, are said by the company to offer quality levels normally seen on top-of-the-range machines, but without the price premium.
Microprecision uses two S&T machines in its own facility for advanced production as well as customer demonstrations. Before making the decision to act as a distributor, the company also made sure the machines could meet the demands of the aerospace industry – with extensive inspection and testing of machined components before they were shipped.
The S&T Gear Manufacturing range comprises: GHO-200, -350 & -500 CNC vertical gear hobbing machines, each with corresponding bed capacity. This is a powerful range of machines offering high-precision capabilities thanks to low surface pressure and high cutting resistance. With a Global User Data (GUD) resource, separate programming is unnecessary and gear production is easy – all that is required is the cutter specifications, the work piece specifications and the cutting conditions.
GSP Series CNC Shaping Machines are also included in the range; these three-axis shaping machines offer high-precision shaping thanks to high-strength columns and counter columns. They also offer reduced installation space thanks to a front-loading cabinet and the GUD environment for easy programming. GSV Series CNC Shaving machines are next in the range, again with the GUD environment. Also available are TCR Chamfering (Deburring) machines and TCG Chamfering machines.
