Gear Hobbing Machine LC 180 ChamferCut

Chamfering after single-cut machining

The great advantage of the LC 180 gear hobbing machine with the new separate ChamferCut unit is that it can perform simultaneous chamfering in a second machining position – two machines in one, so to speak. The LC 180 Chamfer Cut combines high chamfering quality with single-cut machining. This procedure, which has been established for many years, is based on tried and proven machine technology and has now been opened up by Liebherr for new applications. After gear hobbing in the customary single-cut strategy, additional precise and repeatable chamfers are created with the appropriate chamfer cutter, and that with maximum economic performance.

  • Simultaneous chamfering in a second machining position
  • High chamfer quality with single-cut machining
  • HSK 50 interface for chamfer spindle: simple fitting by clamping the cutter onto a milling arbour
  • No need to shorten the hob length
  • Separate fixture for hobbing and chamfering
    • Stiffness-optimized clamping for hobbing
    • Collision-optimized clamping for chamfering
  • Without bulging or secondary burrs

  • Liebherr offers new tools for gear skiving machines

    Broaching is usually the process of choice for producing internal gear teeth – for instance ring gears for planetary transmissions. The broaching process has several disadvantages however. Tool costs are the highest compared with all other gearing tools. The principle on which gear-skiving is based is more than 100 years old.

    However, the process was never successfully applied to serial manufacturing in the past, because the service lives of the tools were very limited. Liebherr-Verzahntechnik has now developed special tools, which can withstand the very high stresses that occur during the skiving process.

    The tool’s clearance and true-rake angles are constantly changing during contact. Enormous forces act on the gear-skiving tool during the continuous cutting and pressing. Simultaneous cutting and reshaping place higher demands on the materials used to make the tools. Liebherr uses two different materials as well as a combination of the two:

    1. Tools made of PM steels

    Tools made of PM steels have a cost advantage, but are subject to greater wear and tear.

    2. Carbide tools

    Carbide tools are more expensive both in terms of material and manufacturing costs and on account of longer grinding times and greater consumption of abrasives. Since they cost roughly three times as much as PM-steel tools, use of carbide tools only makes commercial sense if production quantities are high.

    3. Steel tools with carbide inserts

    Steel tools with carbide inserts are a compromise that is not suitable for every application, given the required assembly clearance between the indexable insert and fixture. These combination tools can however lengthen rough-machining lifetimes and deliver premium quality post-finishing using conventional PM/HSS skiving cutters.
