At the Tremec Queretaro plant, near Mexico City, transmission systems are produced for Daimler, Volvo, GM, John Deere and CNH. Tremec decided that its manufacturing process could be improved considerably, since the process control of parts was taking far too long. With a new Daimler gear project it decided to use Renishaw Equator gauges to take a different approach during grinding and green gear turning. These cells produce 550-600 gears daily, all for export to the Daimler plant in the United States.
