Gear Machining Solutions with Horn Tools

Complete machining of a Cyclo-Palloid Gear with HORN Tooling:

Horn has developed highly efficient gear machining processes for the Gear Industry.  We showcase here an example of machining a Cyclo-Palloid Gear with a HORN tooling solution.  The wide profile is opened with a custom multi-row M279 milling cutter, then the flanks are alternately roughed. The root diameter is machined with a DS cutter, the flanks are finished with a DGVZ tool and the sharp edges are chamfered with a DS cutter.

 

 

We showcase below another example of Gear Cutting with Horn Tools, from the machining of the Cyclo-Palloid Gear Teeth to the machining of External and Internal Splines by Broaching and Power Skiving.

Tooling Solutions for Gear Skiving

For the high-productivity manufacturing of internal gear teeth, splines and other internal profiles, HORN is introducing tools for gear skiving. This machining method has a number of advantages:

  • Considerably shorter processing times in comparison to gear tooth broaching
  • Can be used on optimised milling centres
  • No undercut necessary at the end of the gear tooth
  • Turning and gear cutting possible in a single clamping

Depending on the number of gear teeth and the size of the module, a number of different tool interfaces is used. Each tool is designed specifically for the intended application and adapted for the material. Gear skiving tools are therefore used for medium and large batch sizes. On the tooth flanks, typical surfaces are created which differ from the flanks created by broaching. Depending on the geometry of the component, gear skiving may also be a useful alternative to hobbing or broaching for external gear teeth as well.
