Tooling solutions for machining of shift sleeves
The shift sleeve is one of the components in the synchronizer assembly. It connects/disconnects the main gears to the output shaft in a manual gearbox.
The main challenge in machining shift sleeves is usually to obtain good process security to allow for high productivity and tight tolerances. Grooving is a vital and challenging operation that requires a secure and productive machining process with excellent chip control. In hard part turning, predictable machining and good surface finishing is essential. All this goes together with cost-effectiveness.
