CLC’s 100-SZ CNC gear shaping machine, available from Koepfer America, is designed as a versatile option for job-shop gear shaping applications. The machine features a compact design that reduces required plant space. As many as 2,000 strokes per minute minimize processing time. A long, 100-mm (3.937") stroke length enables the cutting of wide part faces. Additionally, this gear shaper includes a movable saddle which, combined with the machine’s long stroke, allows for a wide range of fixturing solution possibilities.

Optional electronic guide and relief ease helical cutting and crowning. Orientation probing, another optional feature, can programmatically provide automatic timing of part features such as missing teeth or the alignment of multiple gears on the same blank. This probing option maximizes the 100-SZ’s capabilities to handle numerous workpiece configurations.

Similar to other CLC gear shaping machines, this model features a FANUC 31i controller. Heavy-duty machine construction provides rigid mounting and extended machine life. A direct-drive torque motor worktable and cutter spindle promote accuracy; additionally, a cast iron shaping head and column provide high vibration-dampening characteristics.
