Heimatec: Adjustable Tool Holder For Gear Hobbing

  • Wednesday, 31 May 2017 00:00

A gear cutter can be mounted on the adjustable tool holder from Heimatec so that gear hobbing can be performed directly on the tool turret and/or the milling spindle of a lathe.

Cutting tools are adjustable in the tool holder up to 360 degrees depending on machine conditions and gear geometry. Straight and helical gears as well as worm shafts can be produced.

The tool holder is also available in geared-down versions 2:1 and 3:1, which increase the torque. Gears up to module 3 can be produced in a lathe. A gear quality from IT-6 to IT-10 is possible depending on the module, machine conditions, material, and cutting tool.
