Recent technological advances in power transmission and design, along with manufacturing technologies and noise reduction have transformed the gear measuring machines marketplace. Manufacturers of gear measuring machines have been striving to come up with gear measuring machines that are contactless and simultaneously can measure defects or irregularities in gear geometry or surface at rapid speeds. In a bid to keep up with the growing inspection challenges that gear manufacturers face, companies in the gear measuring machines market are focused on adopting zero-contact laser technology in their gear measuring machines that can enable rapid defect identification, and validation. This novel technology in gear measuring machines can enhance gear accuracy, efficient power transmission, quicker cycle times and higher throughput.

Standards for gear geometry have been laid by regulatory bodies which have been impacting the gear measurement market. Standards laid by various associations including AGMA, ISO, JIS and DIN apropos to gear development have indirectly influenced the manufacturing of gear measuring machines, designed as per gear geometry. For instance, AGMA (American Gear Manufacturer’s Association) has announced new standards for hypoid and bevel gear geometry – ANSI/AGMA ISO 23509-B17. Manufactures of gear measuring machines are required to design equipment with parameters that are in alignment with such standards in order to make gear measuring machines compatible with the workpiece.

Automotive industry continues to play a significant role in driving the demand for gear measuring machines on the back of rising adoption of automotive gears in vehicle manufacturing. Automotive gear manufacturers make use of gear measuring machines, either with direct purchase or using third party inspections, to ensure accurate gear geometry and compatible gear structure and surface. Increasing production of vehicles and growing number of vehicle parc is likely to have a positive influence on the demand and sales of gear measuring machines, in turn contributing to their market’s growth. Rise of vehicle manufacturing, particularly in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific, such as India and China, is expected to offer potential avenues of growth of gear measuring machines manufacturers in the forthcoming years.

Growing proliferation of e-commerce has transformed the retail sector and is permeating in the gear measuring machines marketplace. B2B sales through online platforms were low in the past. However, popularity of indirect channels in terms of discounts, availability of several variants of gear measuring machines and higher convenience has translated into increasing preference for online channels. Yet, direct channel, being a traditional selling platform, remains a leading sales funnel for manufacturers, accounting for a major share in the gear measuring machines market.

The gear measuring machines market report includes analysis on various key players involved in the manufacturing and distribution of gear measuring machines. Key facets of players such as SWOT analysis, product portfolio, key developments, mergers and acquisitions and expansion strategies are included in the report. The gear measuring machines market report has profiled companies including but not limited to Gleason Corporation, Klingelnberg AG, KAPP Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH, and Mahr GmbH.

Manufacturers in the gear measuring machines business have been focusing on regional expansion to increase their production capacities. For instance, Gleason Corporation has recently opened new technology and manufacturing center in Switzerland. This new plant includes fully automated manufacturing that enhances the capacity by 60 percent as compared to previous plants. Players in the gear measuring machines market are also focusing on acquisitions to expand their portfolios and overall footprint. Mahr Metering Systems GmbH recently acquired Unipre GmbH, to enhance its technological expertise and develop highly effective gear measuring pumps.

Companies are involved in product line extensions and are introducing new gear measuring machines. Gleason Corporation launched Open Data Exchange Interface for its GEMS software. This interface enhances strength of GEMS software in inspecting and analyzing micro-geometry of gear tooth, transmission errors and contact stresses.

Mahr extended its gear measuring machines product line by introducing a range of new confocal measuring systems particularly for 3D measurements that facilitate efficient gear surface inspection.

Klingelnberg AG has designed P 16 Precision measuring machine. This gear measuring machine can be used to inspect cylindrical gears and bevel gears. KAPP Niles has introduced PGM 400 and ultra-high gear measuring machines – the KNM 7Cs – for efficient inspection of gears with diameters 500mm-1600 mm.

Gear measuring machines are equipment used to inspect gear tooth profiles, pitch circle diameter, roughness of gear surface and gear module. Gear measuring machines are used to inspect various gears such as bevel gears, external and internal gears, helical gears, spur gears, worm gears, planetary gears and hypoid gears. Gear measuring machines are a vital tool that facilitate enable gear manufacturing as per set standards as well as ensure efficient power transmission using gears. Gear measuring machines are widely used across various industries such as automotive, aviation, agriculture, wind power generation and metal & mining.
