Gear pointing, rounding, cutting machines
GMTA (German Machine Tools of America) in Ann Arbor, Michigan represents the Profilator line of gear pointing, rounding, cutting, scudding, hard scudding, deburring, and polygon machine tools for North America.
The company provides full application engineering, machine building, installation, commissioning, and all tooling from its operations in the U.S. and Mexico.
These highly modular machines are used for polygon and slot facing, shifter stop machining, chamfering, and deburring of highly complex automotive and other powertrain gears.
The scudding and hard scudding process sets the Profilator line in an unmatched position in the market for manufacturing efficiency. Hard scudding allows the machining of green and hardened gears on the same machine, using the same programs.
The Profilator line of gear machines is found throughout the North American automotive OEM and major tier vendors.
