Toyoda wins automotive Pace award for gear skiving machining technologyClick image to enlarge

JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corp. has won the 2017 Automotive News PACE Award for its high speed synchronization technology on its GS300 and GS700 gear skiving multi-tasking horizontal machining centres.

The award recognizes automotive suppliers for superior innovation, technological advancement and business performance.

The process has reshaped the standard gear manufacturing process which requires a single part to travel from machine to machine - thereby significantly increasing concentricity error. Comparatively, Toyoda’s innovation takes five processes traditionally spread across five separate machines, and integrates them into one machine while utilizing high speed synchronization to produce parts with more accuracy, less time, less cost, and less risk to the manufacturer.

"In this ever-challenging industry, Toyoda is committed to proactively transcending industry standards - striving to develop new products and processes that will better the manufacturing community. Toyoda's Gear Skiving machines serve as an exemplary representation of this philosophy. We are honored to be recognized by PACE as an organization that brings innovative technologies to the automotive industry" states Howard Michael, president & COO of JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corp.

The 23rd annual PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) Awards were presented by Automotive News, EY and the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA). The competition was open to suppliers who contribute products, processes, materials or services directly to the manufacture of cars or trucks. The Automotive News PACE Award is accepted around the world as the industry benchmark for innovation.
