The power skiving solution from Sandvik Coromant includes a solid bore, solid shank and indexable cutters. These tools are said to offer high tool accuracy with regard to run-out and pitch. Reconditioning can be performed as many as 10 times depending on the quality of the tool. The cutters feature a positive rake angle for light cutting action and the potential for dry machining.

According to the company, the power skiving cutters provide both high output and an optimized finishing profile. The tools are designed to meet customer specification and are said to be as much as 15x faster than shaping and more flexible than broaching. Applications include internal and external gears and splines, in addition to cylindrical spur and helical gears for automotive transmissions, and variety of other gears, coupling components, splines, shafts, synchronization rings and CV joint parts.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.

  • Thread Whirling Basics

    The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
