Gear Cutting Machines

At our 35,000 sq.ft. factory in the UK we have a range of both CNC and manual gear cutting, hobbing and gear shaping machines, including semi – automated CNC gear hobbing for medium to high production work for cutting gears in very small cycle times where both commercial gears and high precision gears can be cut up to a DIN standard of 7. See our plant list for full details.

Gear Hobbing, Shaping & Grinding

Gear hobbing is traditionally used for cutting spur gears, helical gears, splines, sprockets and worm wheels. Gear shaping is normally used for cutting external and internal spur gears and is also used for cutting external and internal splines on shafts. In special circumstances a helical guide can be made to cut a helical gear.

We also offer a CNC Gear Grinding service which is widely regarded as the most accurate way of finishing a high precision gear.
