CGI Inc. offers new gear design and manufacturing capabilities

Comments Off on CGI Inc. offers new gear design and manufacturing capabilities

CGI, Inc., the leading manufacturer of custom precision gearboxes, precision assemblies and mechanical sub-assemblies, today announced new machining capabilities to expand its gear fabrication offerings.

CGI has invested heavily in advanced gear-cutting equipment to deliver spur, helical, bevel, worm, and other gears in a variety of pitches and sizes. Its newest machinery was on display at IMTS 2016 in the Koepfer America booth — North Building, B Hall – Gear Generation – N-6918. One of the first of these machines in the United States, this CLC 100-SZ CNC shaper is capable of shaping myriad parts in an array of sizes — including very fine pitch helical gearing.

“We’ll be producing higher-volume runs of several thousand parts at a time, but we will also use the machine to output low-volume prototype parts — thanks to the ease of setup and programming of this machine,” said Tim Pirie, Director of Manufacturing Systems and Technology at CGI, Inc.

“Because our new machines’ flexibility lets us output low volumes or high volumes, we can help customers through their entire product-development cycle. In other words, we can support everything from the initial design — and supply the initial handful of prototype parts — all the way through to high-volume production of several thousand parts at a time,” continued Pirie.

CGI Inc. showcased its gear products and capabilities at IMTS 2016 at Booth E-4857 in the Motion, Drive & Automation hall.

Other recent CGI Inc. investments include two Koepfer MZ120 automated CNC gear hobbing machines, a Studer S33 CNC cylindrical grinder for grinding precision diameters, a passivation line and several elite multi-tasking machines.

CGI Inc. capabilities include:

  • Engineering and design support from initial design and prototyping to full-scale production — collaborating with customers to design manufacturable components that meet or exceed requirements
  • Design and assembly of fully assembled gearboxes with in-house grinding, turning, milling, Swiss-type, and multitask-machining capabilities for an array of designs
  • Vertical integration including internal heat treating, laser welding, and electrical discharge machining (EDM)
  • Execution of testing and validation to help customers obtain industry approvals
  • Support of inventory management and KANBAN integration to streamline supply-chain management

Comments Off on CGI Featured Online at Gear Solutions

Extensive design knowledge, diverse manufacturing services, analytical capabilities, and partnerships with customers have made CGI a leader in precision gearbox, precision machined components, and electromechanical assembly solutions.

As a fledgling gear design and manufacturing company that began in 1967, CGI developedcgi-custom a reputation early on for quality products and innovative solutions, particularly in the medical and aerospace industries. Founded by Don Snow and based in Southern California, the company was named California Gear and Instrument at that time. Garnering customers such as Jet Propulsion Labs and Hall Surgical, CGI continued to grow.

In 1990, Snow decided to move the business with 15 employees to Carson City, Nevada, and it was then that California Gear and Instrument formally evolved into CGI, Inc. CGI became a pioneer in providing standard industrial gearbox solutions along with the established OEM component products that CGI had provided for decades. In the late 1990s, CGI expanded its facility to effectively double manufacturing square footage.

In 2006, Mike Madison and Brian Coclich purchased the company from Snow. Despite the challenges of the recession, the new owners have taken the company to new heights, making CGI a strategic partner for customers in numerous industries. Last year, CGI’s newest building brought manufacturing square footage to approximately 75,000 square feet.

Today, CGI is committed to providing quality products and services that exceed its customers’ expectations while offering a broad range of capabilities. With over 80 employees, the team at CGI is driven by engineering and innovation. CGI offers design and manufacturing engineering support to facilitate product realization to its customers, effectively becoming an extension of the customer’s engineering and manufacturing footprint.
