According to the manufacturers, in the LK 300 and 500 gear skiving machines, the process, the tools and the machine, including the tool changer and automation system, all come from a single source. This is because the primary aim of Skiving3 is the delivery of an integrated solution for the customer. The solution is seen as especially suitable for internal gears of medium size and quantity since it is reportedly much faster than shaping and more economical than broaching. The machines can be operated using the newly developed touch-based LHGe@rTec control system and user interface.
