Live Tool For Gear Hobbing
Howell, MI – June, 2008 – MD Tooling invites you to see their live tool for Gear Hobbing in action during IMTS.
The unique design of the MD Tooling Gear Hob tool allows you to produce gears or spline shafts on most major turning centers in one operation. There is no need for expensive hobbing machines, no extra part handling and no outsourcing. This allows you to complete your part in one operation.
Standard or special hobs with single or multiple starts can be used. Many arbor sizes are available in either inch or metric sizes. The holder can be adjusted for angles up to 25 degrees and is capable of making spur gears, bevel and helical gears, splines and worm gears. The hob holder will accept a hob up to a 3.000 inch diameter by 3.000 inches long. These features, plus our heavy-duty construction, ease of use and 2 – year factory warranty make it a must see during IMTS.
Two different models of the Gear Hobber will be on display during the show, so make plans to stop by and see this amazing tool in action. The MD Tooling booth #F-2586 will feature a Mori Seiki turning center with the tool installed. The second tool will be in the Doosan Infracore booth #A-8018.
