Honing Machine Optimizes Gear Finishing

Direct-drive, digitally controlled spindles for the tool and the workpiece Software monitors stock allowance, workpiece run-out Reduce cycle times by 3 to 5 seconds

GERMAN MACHINE TOOLS of AMERICA now offers the Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS gear honing machine, with direct-driven, digitally controlled spindles for the tool and the workpiece that achieve precise, rigid synchronization. The Präwema Honing gear finishing process produces quality comparable to grinding results for spur and helical gears, as well as shafts.

The machine’s software checks the stock allowance and workpiece run-out, and then optimizes the X-axis approach distance. 

Measuring the workpiece does not affect the cycle time and the process can reduce cycle times by 3 to 5 seconds.

The machine features a pick-up design to enable automation. The workpieces and dressing tools are loaded and unloaded by the workpiece spindle. The large X-axis travel enables placement of additional stations adjacent to the loading/unloading station inside the machine, such as a two-flank roll-checking device. External robots and conveyor systems can also be integrated by GMTA engineering.  

The honing machine is constructed on a natural granite bed to promote stability and control thermal fluctuations. The X and Z axes are equipped with linear motor drives. The cutting tool is clamped with a hydraulically operated system and the tool spindle can be swiveled into a vertical position, enabling easy access.

Additional options are available for machining oversized drive shafts up to 850 mm long. The Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS-D model, equipped with two spindles, is offered for further reduction of cycle times.
