We use several gear cutting methods, including worm milling, worm gear milling, shaping, hobbing, and gear shaving for producing straight-toothed and helical gears and shafts.
Gear hobbing is a flexible and highly productive gearmaking method that is used for preliminary and finish processing of gears. By varying the machine settings, the tool machine can produce different numbers of teeth, profile displacements, and helix angles, depending on how it is used. Through the use of automated, highly productive CNC hobbing machines of various sizes we have the ability to perform high-quality yet economical production of a wide range of toothed parts.
Our machining capabilities include 25 hobbing machines from major manufacturers like Gleason-Pfauter, Köpfer, Monnier & Zahner, and Richardon. Selected machines may be viewed here.
Both straight and helical, internal and external gearing can be manufactured with cutting-edge CNC gear shaping machines with electronic helical guides. Automation boosts efficiency and improves process reliability. Like gear hobbing, gear shaping is a continuous gear-production method and is used to produce teeth on driveshafts or internal ring gears on planetary drives.
Our machining capabilities include six gear shaping machines from major manufacturers like Gleason-Pfauter, and Liebherr. Selected machines may be viewed here.
Our gear broaching machines are used primarily for manufacturing internal gears. Broaching is a material-removing method. It works by drawing or pressing the broach through the hole of the workpiece, thereby creating the desired contour in the breach of the workpiece. This ensures precise maintenance of dimensional tolerances and produces outstanding surface quality.
Our machining capabilities include four broaching machines from major manufacturers like Klink.
