Gleason Plastic Gears
Gleason-K2 Plastics is in the business of plastic gear design and injection molding precision plastic components with a focus on precision plastic gears. Our lights-out automation enables production of the most cost effective, custom molded gears (spur gears, helical gears, bevel gears, planetary gears, internal gears), pulleys, bushings, rotary air motor rotors and vanes, along with plastic nozzle assemblies, at unmatched quality levels. We have invested in the latest state-of-the-art, high accuracy and energy efficient equipment. This, along with our extensive experience and engineering expertise, allows us to create design concepts and systems that produce quality product, on time and everyday. In a time of downsizing and pricing pressures, Gleason-K2 Plastics provides a “total solution” at a most competitive cost.
Gleason-K2 developed its proprietary process to injection mold gears at AGMA 10 to AGMA 12 without secondary machining. These plastic spur, helical and bevel gears can be molded from all thermoplastic materials currently in use, including filled grades. The plastic gears have a thru-hole and are priced to match the cost of traditional 3-plated AGMA 7 gears! Spur and helical gears, along with plastic pulleys, bushings, cams and encoder wheels, can all take advantage of this breakthrough technology. Greater accuracy and the advancement of high temperature plastics create new and wonderful application possibilities.
