Modular Inverted Vertical Gear Cutting System

Sept. 14, 2023
Compact machine with one/two spindles is individually configurable for various machining processes –scudding, hobbing, cycloidal milling, pointing, chamfering, and deburring.

GERMAN MACHINE TOOLS of AMERICA is offering the Profilator GmbH 300-V gear-cutting machine with linear drives in the North American market. The compact machine is equipped with one or two workpiece spindles and offers maximum flexibility due to its modular design: It is individually configurable for various machining processes (i.e., scudding, hobbing, cycloidal milling, pointing, chamfering and deburring.)

Advanced linear drives in the X and Y axes, as well as a torque drive in the A axis, offer high machine dynamics for short cycle times and maximum accuracy/low costs. 

High machine rigidity is available for “hard scudding” (high-speed gear cutting) of inner and outer diameters.

Additional features include an intuitive user interface that simplifies set-up and programming, and makes the Profilator 300-V industry 4.0 ready (optionally equipped with additional sensors). Various other automation concepts are easily adaptable.

The 300-V is easy to set up and maintain due to the “walk-in” machining area. An optional tool charger is available for maximum machining efficiency.

All Profilator machines are designed for dry machining, establishing advantages like an optimized machining area, no coolant, and no coolant mist. The inverted, vertical spindle(s) allow free chip fall into the central chip conveyor at the bottom. No coolant means no washing of the workpiece is required and the lack of coolant mist signifies that no extraction system is needed.
