Finish Profile Gear Grinding

GS:G2-LM Linear Motor 4-Axis Profile Gear Grinder.

A multi-role grinder that can switch gears as fast as you!

The Drake GS:G2-LM is a perfect blend of precision, power and price. It’s equally at home in job shops,  manufacturing cells, high volume  grinding – even prototype work. If you’ve wanted to move to precision ground gears but balked at the cost–the G2 is the machine for you.

High value – minimal capital outlay

Now you can source near net-shaped or hobbed gears from low-cost suppliers and still control the final product quality. You can supply a quieter, more precise product and remain globally competitive.

Special tooth forms

With on-machine contour wheel dressing, grind modified forms on pre-cut gears without investing in special hobs.

No need to carry expensive special hobbing tool inventory or wait for plated wheels with special forms.
