Engranajes Grindel strengthens its quality control department with the purchase of new cutting-edge measurement equipment24-09-2014
We have expanded our facilities in this area in order to increase our presence in traditional markets and enhance the marine, rail and machinery markets.
At Engranajes Grindel – which specialises in the production of top-quality gears and splined shafts – we have upgraded our quality control department with the purchase of new cutting-edge measurement equipment in order to meet the demands of our current clients as well as to strengthen our client base in sectors such as the marine, rail and the manufacture of larger-sized gears for machine tools and other special machinery.
In order meet the needs of these business activities, our company has installed a CMM Zeiss accura II 9.12.8 with useful ranges of 900 x 1200 x 800 mm. The equipment includes accessories and software for measuring internal and external gears in DIN, ISO and AGMA standards, among others.
The second machine we have brought on board is a Gleason CNC Gear inspection machine that – just like the machine above – will support all the standards mentioned.
Our program of investment in our quality control department is complemented by the renovation and expansion of our facilities aimed to boost top-quality gear manufacturing.
For over a decade Grindel has focused its work on ensuring absolute first-class quality of its products.
One reflection of that effort is our company’s gear inspection equipment, which enables us to check on and ensure that all the gears and shafts we produce meet the requirements and specifications required by its clients.
In addition to these machines, we have another CMM Mutitoyo, a durometer, a Magnaflux fissure detector and a rolling surface compound error checker.
Our quality control programme provides for monitoring suppliers, processes, and the inspection of parts during manufacture, final inspection, corrective and preventive actions and the monitoring of measurement and control equipment.
Our company also possesses ISO9001:2000 quality certification and ISO14001 environmental certification.
We are an established company in the field of transmission elements, both in short as well as medium runs, and we are experts in rectifying exterior toothing.
Some of the main applications of our products are cranes and hoists, civil works construction machinery, special vehicles and 4x4, transmissions, pumps and compressors, gearboxes, diesel engines, robotics andmachine-tool.
