For gear cutting, a continuous movement of the milling cutter produces the required gear teeth. With a hobbing machine, any number of teeth, different profiles and helix angles can be produced by altering the machine settings. This means our gear cutting systems are characterised by their outstanding flexibility and productivity.
Liebherr gear hobbing machines can be used to manufacture the following types of cylindrical gear teeth:
The powerful and reliable Liebherr machines can use tooth cutting tools with innovative coatings to produce even more, even quicker, and for even longer. Liebherr is in close contact with tool manufacturers in order to further optimise process development, and coordination between the machine and the tools.
