Vertical and Horizontal Gear Hobbing Machines

Gears are manufactured using a technology called hobbing, which is why gear-cutting machines are referred to as hobbing machines. EMAG has two types of gear hobbing machines in its product range: horizontal hobbing machines that only perform hobbing operations, i.e. produce all types of pinions, gears (gearwheels) and worm gears.

There are also vertical hobbing machines that are used for combined machining (see combined turning/hobbing technology) to produce gears for chucked components. The vertical design allows for a variety of automation options that are ideal for mass production when combined with the machine’s small footprint. Hobbing machines from EMAG Richardon are perfect for gear hobbing and machining of large components up to module 12.


HLC 150 H—For Maximum Productivity

Covering a unique spectrum of production applications, the HLC 150 H stands out because of the number of innovations included.
This machine’s ability to hob either straight, angled, or worm gear profiles on a wide range of geometries (short gears or long shafts with gear profiles), puts all of EMAG KOEPFER’s expertise at the user’s disposal. To compliment this machine’s abilities, a device for chamfering and deburring of components during loading and unloading, without interrupting operation is also included. Together, these features allow for the perfect gear-cutting solution with short cycle times and minimized costs.
