The Raso 200 CNC gear shaving machine from Sicmat shaves gears from 6 to 200 mm in diameter and module 0.8 to 5.0 mm. Because it has a lathe-like structure, the shaving machine provides performance levels and stiffness comparable to larger machines in a smaller space, the company says. The machine is equipped with Windows-based PILPRO (Piloted Programming) software that helps the operator program complex shaving cycles. In addition to traditional cycles, mixed cycles (plunge plus diagonal), progressive diagonal cycles or combined double cycles can be programmed.
Two standard loaders are available, a double pocket type or one with a drum unit. The company’s automated shaving cells can be configured with stand-alone, rotary or SML (linear) chamfer and deburring devices.
