Gear cutting

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

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.

Technical Data

  • Gear hobbing and form milling
  • Max. workpiece diameter: 300 mm
  • Max. workpiece length: 500 mm
  • Module range: 0.5 to 8 in steel and 10 in non-ferrous metals
  • Max. tooth width: 500 mm
  • Max. helix angle: +60°/-45°

Gear shaping

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.

Technical data

  • Straight, helical, and conical shaping
  • Max. workpiece diameter: 300 mm
  • Module range: 0.5 – 6
  • Max. tooth width: 110 mm
  • Max. helix angle: +/- 45°

Gear deburring by Radial Gear Chamfering

In the field of metal-cutting gearing, increasingly complex and demanding component geometries require burr-free edges and precise surfaces in production. To prepare for these requirements, Framo Morat GmbH & Co. KG has expanded its competencies in gear cutting technology and added a RGC 350 deburring machine from TEC for GEARS to its machine pool. The Radial Gear Chamfering process allows defined and reproducible chamfers to be produced on the tooth front edges. This not only has a positive effect on the quality and functionality of the components, but is also decisive for the cost-effectiveness of parts production.

Technical Data

  • Max. lenght: 350 mm
  • Max. diameter: 350 mm
  • Changeover time below 15 minutes
  • Short cycle times when loading by a robot

Broaching

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.

Technical Data

  • Double-cut broaching available
  • Max. broaching length: 1500 mm
  • Max. broaching diameter: 80 mm
  • Broaching force: 16 t
