Dry-Cut Hobbing Machine can mass produce small-diameter gears.

September 9, 2014

Accommodating up to 100 mm dia gears, GE10A can be used with FANUC or Siemens CNC control and offers radial and axial travel speed of 20,000 mm/min; higher speeds can be achieved via adoption of direct drive motors in main spindle and table. Loader, minimizing workpiece changing time, reduces idle time to 2 sec. Along with 100 mm max workpiece dia and 500 rpm table speed, features include max hob dia x cutting length of 100 x 300 mm, 280 mm hob shift, and 3,500 rpm max hob rotation speed. Read More

Shaping Attachment machines complex features in one step.

May 20, 2014

EPPINGER Shaping Attachment enables single-step machining of difficult-to-cut features, including grooves, Torx screw heads, splines, and gear teeth. Attachment drives cutter into workpiece in Z-axis at cutting speeds up to 1,000 strokes/min. At end of each stroke, integrated lift-off mechanism returns cutter to starting position without drag. With working stroke of 1.3 in. and max feed of 0.006 in. per stroke, attachment can produce max groove widths of 0.31–0.34 in. Read More

Power Skiving Systems produce internal gears.

November 11, 2013

Available for workpieces up to 700 mm in diameter, Power Skiving Systems are suited for production of internal gears, and for all gears with interfering contours and features. Machines utilize extremely rigid guideways, oversized spindles, and rigid bearings. Profile modifications as well as tooth tip chamfer can be built into cutter while lead modifications are realized by additional movements of axes. With software, users can simulate cutting process and plan most effective process strategy. Read More

Grinding Machine handles bevel gears up to 280 mm in dia.

October 30, 2013

Equipped with Fanuc 30i or Siemens 840D CNC, Phoenix 280G combines direct-drive spindles with quick-change wheel, arbor, and coolant header designs. Automatic stock divider, mounted in close proximity to work spindle, automatically determines tooth slot position of pre-finished gear to provide accurate stock division and eliminate operator errors. There are no rails, wires, or pipes in work chamber to collect swarf, keeping chamber clean and minimizing preventative maintenance. Read More

Helical Gear Shaping Machine is fully NC-programmable.

September 17, 2013

Capable of cutting diverse selection of gears, including helical and cluster gears, ST40A applies NC programming technology to relieving motion that prevents interference between cutter and workpiece. Helical guide is not required for each workpiece, and all 7 axes are fully NC-programmable. This accommodates precision cutting applications such as crowning and tapering. Other features include operating speed from 30–600 strokes/min and tapering capabilities up to 0.3° without tilt table.
