HF 1600

HÖFLER Cylindrical Gear Cutting Machine


Versatile machine design for high quality standards

Designed for workpiece diameters of up to 1,600 mm, the HF 1600 cylindrical gear hobbing machine combines leading technology with the perfect design: a machine table with torque motor drive, a heavy-duty gray cast iron machine bed, and integrated workpiece inspection are just some of its features. Through the use of HSS or indexable insert cutters and high-performance gashers in wet or dry cutting processes, this versatile cutting machine sets new standards in productivity and quality – ideal for suppliers of durable, heavy-duty industrial gearboxes.

  • Reliable machine table with torque motor drive
  • Transmission precision with Capto® tool interface
  • Optional internal cutting heads
  • High stability through double V cassette guides
  • Heavy-duty gray cast iron machine bed
  • Energy efficiency (e2)
