Modular Vertical Hobbing Machine VL 4 H – Designed with the Whole Process in Mind


Gears keep the world moving. They are found absolutely everywhere, in many different shapes and made from an extremely wide range of materials. From the tiniest, most delicate gears used by watchmakers, to gears with a diameter of 16 meters used in mines and the cement industry, where they drive gigantic mills and rotary kilns. Big or small, they all have one thing in common: they must satisfy the most demanding requirements.

Press deburring with new hobbing machine LCH 180 two

Continual loading and press deburring occur in parallel during machining time. Separate machine operations take place on two machine tables, each able to swivel 180 degrees and easily accessible: roughing in two phases, pressing, and finishing. After the blank is locked in and tightened, it is swivelled and the first cut of the gear takes…

New LC 180 hobbing machine combines high chamfer quality with one-cut machining

After hobbing with the usual one-cut strategy, the Chamfer Cut tool additionally generates precise and reproducible chamfers, that are increasingly demanded by the market. The newly developed solution eliminates the former main disadvantage of Chamfer Cut, namely that the chamfering process prolongs machining time. In the past, hobbing and chamfering took too much time at…
