FFG Werke Modul H200 vertical hobbing machine

The H80/100/160/200 series is the latest version of our hobbing machine line for small applications, specially engineered for automotive. These machines have been designed for dry cutting operations in particular, although using oil or emulsion is not a problem. Now this machine is available with the option enlarged radial travel. These option allows to cover the working range of H80 up to H200. The new CNC tailstock, driven by a servomotor, is standard now and allows the easy setup and monitoring of clamping force and position. The closed “O-frame” structure with cross beam allows the ideal integration of this tailstock. These new features combined with the user friendly Modul operating interface provides also the optimal base for Job Shop applications.
