Bourn & Koch will feature its 100H horizontal gear hobber. Capable of producing gears up to AGMA Q-13 (with Q-9 to Q-10 typical), it features BK-HMI conversational gearcutting software, which is designed to reduce the time and specialized knowledge required to program a gear. The software is displayed on a 19.5" touchscreen monitor with an integrated cycle time calculator, error proofing and modular programming cycles including point-to-point array programming.

The machine is constructed with hardened and ground precision linear ways and an ergonomic machine tool enclosure ready for integration with automation. The hobber also features standard single and double cut cycles, a FANUC 0i-F CNC, a power-programmable CNC hob swivel, an automatic hob shift, crown and taper hobbing cycles, a 4" diameter hob slide and a high-intensity work light. It can cut gears ranging to 127 mm in diameter and 2.54 module.

The 100H has the same spindle face as the Barber-Colman 6-10, so workholding and tooling are interchangeable between the two, aiding in the transition to CNC gear hobbing.
