VIPER 500

HÖFLER Cylindrical Gear Grinding Machine


Convertible machine for individual requirements

The VIPER 500 cylindrical gear grinding machine is designed for component diameters up to 500 mm and is optimally suited for small to medium-sized batches. To suit individual requirements, the machine is available in four different configurations: Profile grinding, small grinding wheels for custom jobs and multiplewheel technology (K), as well as generating grinding (W) or (KW). The VIPER 500 W / KW configuration allows both profile grinding and continuous generating grinding on the same machine – with minimal retooling time.


  • Convertible machine for generating, profile, and internal grinding (VIPER 500 W)
  • Retooling from generation grinding to profile grinding in less than 5 minutes (VIPER 500 W)
  • Retooling to internal grinding in less than 15 minutes
  • Highly dynamic axes at 5 m/sec2 acceleration and 20 m/min rapid traverse
  • Low-maintenance machine concept due to separation of working chamber from drive technology
  • No pump station needed for grinding oil
  • Optimal energy efficiency (e2) thanks to recovery and on-demand powering of units
