William Gleason is the founder of Gleason.

William Gleason was born on April 4, 1836. At the age of 15, he came to the United States with his mother and brother from Boriskane, Tipperary County, Ireland.

As an apprentice, he worked as a mechanic in AsaR. Swift and l. Ange&Sons machine processing plants in Rochester to receive training.

During the Civil War, he worked in the Cote Armory in Hartford, Connecticut.

In 1865, William Gleason returned to Rochester and opened his own machinery factory.

It was this small factory that slowly developed into the future Gleason factory and eventually became a listed Gleason company.

The factory was initially responsible for the production of a series of metal processing tools and machine tools, mainly ordinary lathes and planers.

In 1874, William Gleason developed the first bevel gear bubble shaper.

This invention witnessed the beginning of the bevel gear industry and opened up the possibility of the development of power plant transmission.

Today, Gleason focuses on operating a business, mainly responsible for the design, manufacturing and sales of bevel gear and cylindrical gear machine tools.

The company produces a full set of bevel gear machine tools and cutters.

Bevel gears can change the transmission angle of the force, for example, from the driving shaft to the rear axle of the vehicle.

At the same time, the company also manufactures cylindrical gear machine tools and cutters.

2. Klingelnberg

Country: Germany

Founded: 1863

About the company:

Klingelnberg was founded in 1863, adhering to the traditional machinery company.
