Welcome to Profilator GmbH & Co. KG, Wuppertal

Profilator develops and produces both vertical and horizontal machines for the cutting of spline, face and special gears on gear wheels.


We offer different gear cutting processes for gear cutting with spline gears:

Depending on the gear cutting job and performance requirement of the customer, the most suitable process can be chosen from the available gear cutting processes - fly cutting with carbide inserts, hobbing, gear skiving and SCUDDING®.

Face gears
Different face gears can be cut on our machines with different gear cutting processes:

Clutch gears, sensor splines and Hirth gears are created with the cycloidal cutting process. The crown gear is done using SCUDDING®.

Special gears
To produce special gear forms in synchromesh and gearbox parts for trucks and cars, we offer machines for all required machining. 

Depending on the requirement, an optimal machine configuration can be put together for the customer using our modular systems shifterstops, pocket groove milling, pocket cutting and pointing. This ranges from the single spindle machine with the greatest flexibility to the double spindle machine with the shortest cycle time.

Cutting from another world – Gear skiving becomes Scudding®

From 16 - 21 September 2013, the world of Metalworking will meet again in Hanover.

Profilator will be there and show its extraordinary innovation – gear skiving becomes Scudding®.

 – Cutting from another world. Quality meets speed. At least 5 times faster cutting compared with gear shaping.

Scudding® – The surface appearance is scraped, no longitudinal scoring marks, no profiling cuts.
