Wet or dry vertical hobbing

Gleason Corp. reports that their Genesis 130H CNC Vertical Hobbing Machine optimizes dry machining, significantly reduces floor space requirements and greatly improves cycle times. The work area of the 130H is completely isolated from the machine frame to minimize thermal expansion from contact with hot chips, and a stainless steel cutting chamber with steep inclination ensures chips fall completely clear of the work area. A mechanical cam driven double gripper loader is fully integrated into the machine. A simple "D-Drive" hob drive system transmits more torque through the spindle with less runout, and permits the use of larger diameter hobs. Additional features include: direct-drive spindle motors; hydraulics, lubrication and pneumatics consolidated into one module for service; SIEMENS or FANUC controls; and optional on-board chamfering and deburring capability.
