Gleason’s 600PS power-skiving machine is designed for cylindrical internal and external gear production. The skiving machine accommodates gear diameters ranging to 700 mm, swing diameters ranging to 850 mm and modules ranging to 8 mm. The machine is said to be equally suited to small-lot and mass production runs. According to the company, skiving is a viable and cost-effective alternative to gear shaping and other soft-machining processes such as hobbing and broaching. Process control is supported by a dialog menu in the control unit. Modifications to profile and tooth trace can be easily applied. Simulation tools calculate chip geometry, chip formation and contact geometries for each specific process step, enabling efficient, focused process design.
