Bigger, coarser hobbing machine.

The heavy-duty Model 300 provides for big part diameters, coarser diametral pitch, and bigger hob capacity than other hobbing machines from the manufacturer. The machine has nine axes of CNC control with the gantry loading system, allowing for parallelaxis or cylindrical gear cutting applications, including the timing of one gear to another on the same workpiece and the timing of a gear tooth to an external or internal feature. The unit provides a maximum module of 4.0mm with a maximum workpiece diameter of 195mm, and a maximum workpiece length of 500mm when manually loading, or 300mm with automatic loading. Other features include a composite epoxy bed for static, dynamic, and thermal stability; direct-drive digital work and cutter spindles; quick work clamping and cutter spindles for quick changeover; full color control panel with TFT touch screen; and optional CNC controlled gantry automation system.
