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.
