Contemporary Gear Pre-Machining Solutions Author: C. Kobialka


Depending on production volumes, batch sizes and workpiece geometry, several gear manufacturing technologies are used for industrial gear production. Most frequently applied is the hobbing process, followed by broaching, shaping, sintering and rolling processes. Upcoming gear manufacturing processes are power skiving, forging, precision blanking and cold forging. Due to improvements to the numerical control of direct drive technology, the power skiving process has become a competitive gear manufacturing process in comparison to shaping, blanking and broaching. The potential of the reinvented power skiving process will be explained by production volume analyses, achievable gear quality and gear geometry modifications. Also the economical and environmentally friendly aspect of the power skiving process will be explained.
