As the manufacturers explain, the Pittler PV315 is based on their tried and trusted vertical series. The new platform has been oriented towards the company's advanced Power Skiving gearing technology, which can be used for both internal and external gear cutting. As is explained, the components can either be machined completely with a single clamping, or be machined by upstream or downstream turning, milling or deburring processes in addition to gear cutting. The skiving center has also been optimized for fully automatic series production. Particularly stressed by the exhibitors is that the work chambers of up to two gear centers are automatically supplied with tools via an innovative automation cell. This is said to minimize space and investment requirements in comparison with robot loading.

With the PV315, Pittler will be unveiling the first skiving center of its kind including an automation cell at EMO Hannover 2017. It is designed for the complete machining of larger components up to 400 mm in diameter.
