C 50

OERLIKON Bevel Gear Cutting Machine


Highly efficient, environmentally friendly dry-cutting

The vertical design of the C 50 bevel gear cutting machine and the direct drives for the tool, workpiece and angle drive make it ideal for dry-cutting bevel gears with coated carbide cutters. The C 50 is designed exclusively for dry-cutting processes. When used in conjunction with the high-performance ARCON® and SPIRON® cutters, the bevel gear cutting machine can be used to produce all common spiral bevel gears in both continuous indexing and single indexing processes with maximum efficiency.


  • 6-axis CNC machine for ultra-efficient dry-cutting of bevel gears
  • Optimal chip flow thanks to vertical axis configuration
  • Machining: Continuous indexing, single indexing, straight gearing
  • High-performance carbide tools
  • Unrivaled gearing and surface quality
  • Short setup and clamping times
  • Optional: Automatic deburring, KOMPASS workpiece measurement system
  • Ideally suited for automatic loading
  • Energy efficient (e2)
