Automotive

Requirements:

In cars, spiral bevel gears are used in all-wheel-drive systems and rear-wheel-drive systems to transmit torque from the transmission "to the road." Due to increasing performance requirements, these drives must transmit outputs of up to 300 kW or more. The bevel gears they use must be efficient, smooth-running, and low-maintenance. Reproducible quality in standard production with the fastest possible production times are key requirements in this industry.

Solution:

The optimized machine design covers the entire spectrum for applications in the automotive industry. The built-in loading unit reduces loading and unloading times to 6 seconds. Thanks to the integrated contour deburring in combination with the high-speed dry cutting process, the typical machining time for one component is just 60 seconds.
