With the new cycles of the TNC 640 for high-quality external and internal gear teeth, you can easily and economically manufacture spur and helical gearing systems entirely within a single setup. The software makes these two machining operations possible in both milling and turning mode.
The new gear-milling cycles:
Don’t agonize over the complex sequence of movements required for skiving. The “gear skiving” cycle will handle it for you.
All you need to do is specify the data for the gear geometry and the tools to be used. The TNC 640 will take care of the remaining calculations, particularly for dynamic motion control in double-spindle operation.
As a result, the production of internal gears turns into an easy-to-master standard application.
Your advantages from skiving:
The TNC 640 also supports your programming work with its “gear hobbing” cycle. In this case as well, gear geometry and tool data are the only specifications you will need to define.
Hobbing is particularly well suited for external gears. Its advantages include high productivity and a wide variety of tooth forms creatable with easy-to-manufacture tools.
Your advantages from hobbing:
A single definition; numerous benefits
Define your gear’s geometry only once using the cycle “defining the gear.” All of the machining steps required for subsequent machining, including roughing and finishing, make use of this definition. It’s that simple!
Greater protection and reliability
In the event of unforeseen program interruptions, such as power outages, the new gear-milling cycles support optimized lift-off. The cycles automatically determine both the direction and the path of the tool’s retraction from the workpiece.
Your advantages from optimized lift-off:
