Affolter Technologies’ Gear AF110 hobbing center is designed for micromechanical industries such as automotive, aerospace, dental, medical and watchmaking. The machine accommodates larger workpieces with diameters ranging to 40 mm and pitch diameter ranging to 1.0 mm. Maximum machining length is 90 mm. Spindle speeds range to 12,000 rpm and clamping force is 1,000 N.

The compact hobbing center features the same base and volume as the company’s AF100 model and is designed for rigidity and minimal vibrations. Its 12 axes are controlled by the Leste CNC to reduce cycle times. The Unit 90 add-on enables the machine to perform worm milling operations after a quick change-over.
