Rochester, New York –The 500CB cutter build inspection machine delivers accurate, highly automated build, truing, and inspection of stick-blade bevel gear cutters.

The 500CB features automated closed-loop blade positioning, creating a highly accurate and repeatable build quality. An accurately built cutter head is a critical factor in achieving precise gear quality and maximum tool life.

The 500CB automatically controls the tightening of the blade clamp screws, consistently applying the correct torque. These features require greatly reduced operator involvement to build highly accurate and repeatable cutter heads, while freeing personnel to perform other functions.

An intuitive operator interface includes wizard functions to guide an operator through the build process. Software features make recommendations to the operator while continually displaying key data as the head is being built.
