Live at EMO 2019: VMC 450-5 MT Turning/Milling Center – Five Axes for Dramatically Shorter Machining Processes in the Production of Large Parts

Large components and complex geometries—in heavy machining, this combination is far from rare and is always synonymous with a high expenditure of time and rising costs. A primary reason for this is that the variety of machining processes required, from turning to gear cutting, are typically performed on different machines that are not completely linked with one another. Additionally, the variety...

High performance for the welding of gears

In every synchromesh or dual-clutch transmission, there are gears with a synchronizer mechanism: They transmit the torque of the engine to the drive axle via a coupling body (synchro body) and a shift sleeve. There is one gear for each step of the transmission, meaning that a seven-gear transmission requires 7 + 1 gears.

A design that has proven successful is that of a wheel and synchro body,...
