New Gleason 500CB Cutter Build Machine enables SEW Eurodrive to eliminate costly tool room bottlenecks: building, truing and inspecting a bevel gear cutter head manually once took 90 minutes; it’s now a fully automated 30 minute process.
SEW Eurodrive USA’s ultra-modern Lyman, South Carolina (USA) facility is running three shifts a day, six days a week and busting at the seams to keep pace with record demand from SEW Eurodrive Assembly Centers around the world.

up at night – guess again. “We’ve never been more productive or efficient,” he says, “And we have some of the latest Gleason technologies helping us get there. It’s a good problem to have.”
