New 5-axis machining center

Capable of cutting not only the Gleason style bevel but also the Klingelnberg type gearing.

Both of these styles of gears are commonly used in many oil and gas, mining, steel, construction, agriculture, defense, pulp and paper, and other applications.

How the 5-Axis Machine Works

Similar to a CNC machining center, a five-axix machine has three liner axes, plus two rotary axes.  The difference is the addition of two rotary axes to the machine's headstock and spindle:

  1. Rotary tables
  2. Rotary axes

The results?  The 5-axis machine offers drastic improvements to these applications:

  • Complex 3D Shapes
  • 3D Coorindate Conversion: drilling, milling, reaming and taping on tilted surfaces
