As the exhibitors report, thanks to the easy control of the tooth trace modification, different amounts of crown can be manufactured. This is claimed to make the machine highly suitable both for the supplier industry and for the development of prototypes. Moreover, thanks to its small installation surface and a maximum stroke speed of 1,500 double strokes, the gear shaper is said to be not only productive but also easy to integrate into existing production plants.
Gear shaping machine with electronic shaping head
Enormous flexibility is a distinguishing feature of the new LS 180 E gear shaping machine with electronic shaping head, according to Liebherr. This is because it can machine spur and helical gears in a single clamping and can therefore shape several gear wheels on a workpiece.
