Eaton Gear Press and Alignment

This large assembly press for a major truck transmission manufacturer, Eaton, showcases an example of an automated retrofit. We designed and built the upper and lower tooling for this large hydraulic press.  The tooling presets the angular relationship (timing) between the gears and the press forces the gears onto a jack shaft. After the pressing operation the gears are permanently welded in place. Controls are used for measurement and inspection feedback loop.
