The model features automatic cycles for continuous and incremental wheel shifting, wheel dressing with tooth size compensation, and constant dynamic wheel balancing. Standard equipment includes a FANUC series 15MB controller with 8 axis CNC control.

The applicable subheading for the TAG 400 CNC Spur and Helical Gear Grinder will be 8461.40.5070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for gear grinding or finishing machines...Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 4.4 percent ad valorem.
