The new machine has the ability to introduce consistent and
uniform edge breaks to Precision Ground Gears. This is notably been
assigned to flight critical aerospace gears where the edge break
requirements have to be very accurate and consistent and therefore
difficult by hand. The consistancy of tool speed and load and
rotational speed of the component ensures an even material removal
on the component. Also the types of tools used can allow access to
edges of teeth deep into undercuts.
