Power Skiving Tools
The coated solid carbide power skiving tool was ordered by a customer to validate the machining of an internal spline on a machining centre developed for gear hobbing.
The purpose of the recently completed trial was to convey to the customer the feasibility of the machining, the quality of the cut and an accurate cycle time. The cut depth is one time the internal diameter of the part, which imposed significant constraints on the tool construction.
This part is currently executed using a shaping process which has reached its limits in terms of productivity for several reasons.
The customer can now choose to invest in a new technology, Powerskiving, with proven performance, or to continue with existing production means with limited capacity.
