Hopwood Gear Ltd: Gear Testing & Quality Assurance


The testing of a gear is an essential part of the process of providing quality, longer lasting gears. Using the excellent Klingelnberg CNC Gear checking machine, allows gear manufacturers to not only test the gears, it produces precision graphs to the NAMAS standard (National Accreditation of Measurement and Sampling). This gives both the manufacturer and the customer peace of mind that a gear has met the desired level of accuracy when the graph given by the Klingelnberg CNC Gear checking machine says it does. When you require the same gear specifications for repeat runs, the specifications are kept on the machine, which keeps the time of testing to the testing process only. To ensure that the testing is a fully rounded service, quality assurance guarantees are a quick and simple method of measuring a company’s ability.
