In the bevel gear product sector, Klingelnberg develops and produces a wide range of gear components and is the global market leader in the production of large spiral bevel gears. From standard solutions to high-tech applications – for the aerospace industry and Formula 1, for example – Klingelnberg offers its customers tailor-made gearing solutions. Beside production-related activities, the range of services also includes engineering services such as bearing-pattern optimization, calculations, design and simulation of gear components, and determination of static and dynamic factors of the complete system.
Each and every day, Klingelnberg experts demonstrate their expertise and flexibility in developing optimal solutions for customers. From the first sketch all the way through to assembly support, every step in the developing and manufacturing process is coordinated in close partnership with customers.
The huge demands on raw material quality from customers and classification societies are complimented by Klingelnberg’s own material purchasing regulations.
State of the art CNC technology is used to carry out turning and grinding operations on the gear sets.
Precise and fully automatic tooling set-up is performed by Klingelnberg CS machines in accordance with the KIMoS calculation.
The world´s largest C 300 face-hobbing machine cuts the gears according to target data. Final machining of the tooth-flanks by the HPG method, uses the most modern tooling available in a closed-Loop process
The Heat treatment is one of the most important processes for achieving the highest quality levels in gear production. Extensive experience and metallurgical know-how is required.
Bevel gears with a diameter of up to 1,100 mm are finished using the economical grinding procedure. This allows for a high degree of freedom in defining the tooth-flank topography.
For quality assurance purposes all ground gears are tested for grinding burns.
Klingelnberg’s most modern groundbreaking measuring center technology checks the quality of the gears and measures the topography.
The gear sets are rolled of on a testing device to document the contact pattern and simplify the final assembly process for the customer.
At the end of the process chain all relevant dimensions are checked again during final inspection. Final acceptance is accompanied by the classification society wherever required.
