Twist Control Grinding

Twist Control Grinding (TCG) allows the modification of the contact patterns of meshing gear teeth, and therefore, gives gear design engineers a high degree of freedom to creatively design gear flank geometries to make ever better and ever more efficient transmissions.

TCG means that the forces acting on the bearing surfaces can be ideally distributed, resulting in higher power density and increased longevity of gears. Higher power density, for example, translates into smaller gears, and by extension, into a weight reduction of the transmission itself, which contributes to better fuel economy. The ease of use of the machine’s TCG capability converts theses optimised features into an easy to set up and efficient manufacturing process.
