The generation of straight or helical gears is one of the most complex types of machining. This is the operation that shapes the gear teeth on our drive pinions and gear wheels.
At Masson-Marine, we use 18CrNiMo7-6 grade steel.
Gear cutting usually follows the lathing operations.
Output rates are between 1 and 10 parts per day.
Cycle times may vary from 60 minutes for an external helical gear to 180 minutes for straight internal ring gears.
This kind of machining operation is carried out on gear hobbing mills:
Here, we can directly leave out teeth in straight gear teething.
We use the following gear shaping machines:
