"We will be displaying new product offerings for shaping, finish gashing and hobbing, including our new 2-Start Hob and indexable Shaper in sizes starting at 6 DP," says Frank Berardi, product manager gear machining. The 2-Start Indexable Carbide Insert Hob nearly doubles productivity for machining gears with large numbers of teeth when compared to single-start ICI hobs. The Ingersoll 2-Start Hob features inserts with four cutting edges and simple set-up with no shims or adjustment required. The unique segmented design provides an expandable assembly, and simplifies repair. Ingersoll's 2-Start Hob can be designed for rough, pre-grind, and finish applications depending on the gear quality requirement.
Ingersoll solutions offered include ID and OD roughing gashers for modules six and up, ID and OD finishing gashers for modules six and up, roughing and finishing gashers with through-tool coolant channels, carbide insert hobs for modules 6 and up, including multi-start hobs and shapers in modules 6-12. Ingersoll has 30-plus years of experience in designing indexable gear cutting tools that require unique application solutions.
