IMTS Preview: Felsomat USA, Inc.
July 18, 2014—Felsomat Corporation will feature the latest gear honing technology at Booth N-7040. With the introduction of the Felsomat Power Speed Honing (Model FPSH) machine, they continue to re-define gear manufacturing technology. The FPSH 180 is specifically designed to be part of the Felsomat Flexline concept. The FPSH represents the highest performance and process stability achieved in the field of gear honing. The FPSH begins with the hobbing process performed by the FHC 180 hobbing machine. Next the integration of the ALD SyncroTherm inline heat treatment process ensures reduced thermal distortion of the gears. This means that less stock needs to be removed from the gear flanks resulting in shorter gear honing cycle times. The FPSH can hone gears up to 160 mm diameter and module 0.5 – 4.0 mm. Stock removal between 40–80 microns on each flank is possible depending on the heat treatment deviation, and grinding burn is not a possibility due to the low cutting speed. In addition to the FPSH, Felsomat’s Flexline integrates the entire gear manufacturing process into one uninterrupted chain and is comprised of the following machine/processes: Felsomat Turning Cell FTC 180, Flex Hobbing Center FHC 180, Flexline Integrated Heat Treatment and the Laser Welding Cell FLW 180.
