Cutting from another world –
Gear skiving becomes SCUDDING®
Profilator demonstrated very impressively that its products fulfill what they promise. At the live machining sessions, visitors could witness with their own eyes the incredible performance and quality of the new SCUDDING® gearing process.
The S-500, a SCUDDING® machine for gear wheels with a swing diameter of up to 500 mm, was used to machine a ring gear with helical gearing, 82 teeth, three modules, and a gearing length of 57 mm – all in just 2 1/2 minutes. Machining was fully dry and conformed to DIN 3962’s quality level 7. With gear shaping, achieving the same outcome would require wet machining with oil, which would take ten minutes.
