Gear Shaping Machine delivers up to 3,000 strokes/minute.

November 17, 2014

With static and dynamically stiff machine concept, aided by twin-bearing crankshaft design, Model 100S is suited to small face width gears, including spur and helical gears, both internal and external, as well as automotive synchro rings and tapered gears. Machine provides dry machining cycle as standard; wet machining is available as option. In addition, machine offers optional automatic adjustment of stroke position after re-sharpening of shaper cutting tool. 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

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.

Grinding Machine can produce variety of gears in small lots.

January 24, 2011

Able to machine gears with 0.5-8 modules, ZE40A accommodates both generating and profile grinding and also enables modification of biased flank shapes. This 9-axis, fully automated NC machine requires 3,750 x 4,000 mm installation space and employs direct-drive system that promotes smooth revolution of main and table spindles. Max external gear diameter of workpieces is 400 mm for high-efficiency machining and up to 600 mm dia when machining requirements are reduced. Read More

Gear Cutting Machines do not use any fluids for processing.

December 3, 2008

Able to process workpieces with ODs up to 150 mm, SE15A gear shaping machine employs counterbalancing shafts that reduce vibration and noise for stable machining at max speed of 2,000 spindle strokes/min. Gear hobbing machine, GE25A, is equipped with gear-tooth chamfering device and achieves cycle time of 40 sec. It can machine workpieces with up to 250 mm ODs at speeds of 250 m/min. Both machines come with software for setting conditions and graphic display of operating status. Read More

Gear Shaper eliminates mechanical changeovers.

February 4, 2002

Electronic GP 300 ES can change over from spur to helical gears, or from one helix angle to another without having to first change guide to accommodate new gear. This eliminates timely changeovers for mechanical and hydrostatic helical guide systems. It uses backlash-free direct drive under CNC control, so any helix angle within stroke rates and length can be created by changing CNC programs. Read More
