Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH’s ChamferCut enables the chamfering process to be performed during the machining process. This optimizes the gear hobbing machine portfolio for the ChamferCut process and offers enhanced technologies with increased cost-efficiency, as additional machining is no longer required following chamfering, the company says. 

According to the company, this process enables a complete and even chamfer right down to the tooth root. There is no need for a second cut, which is often required during the deformation-based deburring process for the removal of build-up material. As the exact chamfer shape is generated during chamfering, there is no effect on the material structure, unlike with deformation-based processes.

    With the switch from a ground top-notch tool to a pressed Ingersoll threading form tool on one high-volume job, Warren Screw Machine eliminated 2 minutes of hand deburring per part. Not incidentally,  the company also lopped 20 seconds per part off the threading cycle.
