Gearwheel manufacturing in 34-second cycle - Minimising production times to ensure competitiveness is one of the most important challenges in the automotive industry - Henry Ford already recognised this over a century ago. After decades of optimisation, it is difficult to reduce machining times even further while maintaining the same level of quality. Nevertheless, the company Volkswagen (VW), near the German town of Kassel, has managed to achieve this in gearbox production using KAPP NILES gear grinding machines.
Generating and Profile Grinding in Gear Manufacturing - Generating grinding with dressable tools is an established technology in gear production. ZF Steyr Pršzisionstechnik GmbH uses this process for a wide variety of applications, from series production to prototyping. Flexible machines manufactured by Kapp Niles can master all applications at the shortest set-up time and fully integrated into automatic production. They can be easily used for profile grinding in special productions or prototyping which cannot be realised with generating grinding.

Chamfering and Deburring Gears Precisely to Achieve Smoother Gear Transmissions - The chamfering and deburring of gears is often an undervalued process in gear production. However, it has a great influence on the usage characteristics of the work piece. Improvements in Ratings for Gear Shifting in vehicles also depends on the process used for this operation. This article explains the sophistication required in tools using plastic deformation for chamfering and rolling and cutting action for deburring.
