MHI will propose the ZE24B gear grinding machine in combination with a gear hobbing machine and gear shaper, which are produced locally in China, as a production system configuration that can handle all tasks from rough machining (gear cutting) through finishing.
The Changshu Plant, operated under a "shared factory" scheme, launched operations in 2011 with the production of gear hobbing machines; subsequently operations have been expanded in variety and models to include gear shapers and double-column 5-face milling machines.
Gear shaper cutting tool manufacturing equipment is moving to the Star Cutter plant in West Branch, MI, where production of Fellows disk type, shank type, fine pitch, special and cam shaper cutters will be manufactured under the Fellows/Star-SU brand name.
Hoffman Estates, IL, acquires through Bourn & Koch all assets relating to the manufacture of Fellows gear shaper cutting tools, including inventory and work in process.
The Gleason Pfauter GP 300 ES Gear Shaper

Since developing the world's first dry cutting gear production system using no cutting fluid in 1997, MHI has expanded its dry-cut product offerings, including machine tools such as gear hobbing machines and gear shaping machines as well as cutting tools such as super dry hobs and super dry gear shaper
The new company will initially manufacture precision cutting tools, including hobs, gear shaper
cutters, gear shaving cutters and broaches, and later incorporate them with Mitsubishi Heavy's advanced technologies to boost their competitiveness, the company said.
The combined product line now includes gear hobs, gear shaper
, cutters, and form-relieved milling cutters; available in a wide range of designs, coatings, and materials.
