Forest City Gear Adds Zeiss Accura CMM

Forest City Gear has expanded the capabilities of its Quality Assurance Department with the addition of a Zeiss ACCURA Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM).

The next-generation bridge-type Zeiss is Forest City Gear's fourth CNC inspection system, and is particularly suited for very fast, complete analytical inspection of all types of high precision fine- and medium-pitch cylindrical gears. A variety of interchangeable Zeiss sensors provide a high degree of flexibility and faster calibration, approach and scanning for lead, involute, pitch, surface finish and other critical features across a wide size range.

The system also features a particularly compact and ergonomic design, making it ideal for Forest City Gear's fast-expanding quality assurance room. The Zeiss ACCURA's bridge is made of steel and aluminum, making it rigid, yet slim and compact. The reduced weight of the moving parts improves the dynamic rigidity and speed of the machine.

"The added capacity of the Zeiss ACCURA has now enabled Forest City Gear to move its existing Zeiss CONTURA CMM to meet the quality requirements of its new stand-alone gear blanking facility," said Forest City Gear Quality Assurance Lead Amy Sovina. "With quality and throughput requirements never higher in all the industries we serve, this system is the perfect addition."
