The Höfler Viper 500 series from Klingelnberg offers pre-finishing and finishing of complex gears including process design, cutting, measuring, deburring, grinding and quality control. “We offer three machining configurations including the Viper 500 (profile and internal grinding), Viper 500 K (profile, internal grinding and spindle option K) and Viper 500 W (profile, internal and generating grinding),” says Ralf-George Eitel, managing director, sales and service at Klingelnberg. “These machines are highly adaptable, offer a quick changeover, low maintenance and optimal energy efficiency.”
The Viper 500 series can go from generation grinding to profile grinding by swapping out the grinding wheel, grinding wheel flank and dressing wheel in less than five minutes on the 500 W (which was on display during Gear Expo). “We’re offering the customer high productivity with the lowest possible cost per piece,” adds Eitel. “This is made possible with our comprehensive service offerings and the technical expertise and support from the Klingelnberg engineers.” Learn more about this new machine technology in the October issue of Gear Technology.
