CLC Series: Vertical Gear Hobbing Machines from EMAG SU
The CLC series are universal gear hobbing machines for workpieces with a diameter of 200 to 1,000 mm.
Highly Flexible Gear Hobbing Machines for Gear Machining of Shafts, Gear Wheels, and Worm Gears
On the innovative CLC series, gearwheels, worm gears, and gear shafts can be machined highly productively – with oil, emulsions, or dry. Several procedures are available: from hobbing and skiving to milling single parts, as well as finish milling. The standard automation system used is a 2- or 4-station ring loader with tool conveyor belt. A loading system with a robot directly on the spindle is optionally available. Additionally, the machine can be equipped with a chamfering and deburring station at the 90° position of the ring loader.
The hobbing machines are excellent solutions for machining gearwheels, worm gears, and shafts with toothing – as individual parts or as series. For larger quantities, the machine can be equipped with an automation system. On the CLC series, workpieces with a diameter up to 1.000 mm can be machined.
The workpiece spindle is designed as a direct drive; additionally, the tangential axis is hand scraped, and thus, contributes to the high rigidity of the machine. The high machine weight of 14 tons keeps the vibrations low during milling operations.
The workpiece table is equipped with a direct drive. With a hydraulic cylinder located in the table, clamping operations can be performed. The steady provides high pressure, which ensures that gearwheels and shafts can be clamped on the machine very securely.
Optionally the hobbing machine can also be equipped for working on non-ferrous metals.
This machine is available with either Fanuc or Siemens control. The entries are made in a dialog-based program.

The Right Manufacturing Solution for Every Workpiece
The machining process for gears utilizes machines of the VL platform, with four key operations carried out sequentially. Turning the first side and second side of the gear (OP 10 and OP 20) is done on…
