Achieving close tolerance gears in the soft stage is a common challenge.
For mass production of gears in the module range 4-10, an indexable insert cutter is a cost-efficient alternative to regrindable high speed steel or solid carbide hobs. For smaller module sizes and smaller production volumes, we recommend disc cutters with full profile inserts and InvoMilling, which is and excellent choice for prototyping.
CoroMill 176 is designed for gears in the module range 4-10. Its ability to reach high cutting speeds combined with user-friendly insert changing will reduce cycle times, making it the high productivity gear milling choice.
