Bourn & Koch Inc. has developed the 100H-T gear hobber and the Fellows 10-4 gear shaper for its lineup of gear manufacturing and precision grinding machines.

The Fellows 10-4 gear shaper has been updated with flexure plates and an electronic helical guide. The electronic helical guide enables the programming of helical angles within the company’s human-machine interface. The company also has partnered with Halter Robotics to show the potential of its Easy-Automate enclosure when paired with robotic part handling.

The 100H-T, which produces gears and spline shafts, adds an eight-station turret to the company’s 100-mm horizontal gear hobbing machine to enable turning and hobbing in one setup.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Speeding Up Splines

    Moving small- to medium-batch production from outsourced, dedicated hobbing operations to in-house, CNC multitasking machines helps job shops achieve quick turnarounds and flexibility in supplying splines for the heavy-vehicle industry. Inserted disc cutters make this transition possible.

  • After Grinding, What’s Left for Gear Hobbing, Shaping and Shaving?

    With so many advances being made in gear grinding technology, where does that leave processes such as hobbing, shaping and shaving? This shop explains its machining methodology.
