Koepfer America has expanded its line of gear manufacturing solutions by partnering with TecnoMacchine. TecnoMacchine manufactures CNC deburring and chamfering machines, and the company offers several options for flexible automation. Consequently, North American gear manufacturers will benefit from TecnoMacchine's fit in Koepfer America's line of high-tech machine tools.
Multiple standard machine models and configurations are available, but TecnoMacchine also configures each machine to suit a customer's specific needs. For example, the TM 200 gear deburring machine features five work stations that can be configured with brushes, discs, milling tools and more to achieve the exact operation required. Moreover, this model can be configured with a CNC basket-type loading and unloading system for large volume work, a flexible, stacked pallet system or a robot system. For large gears, the TM 1000 is designed for parts up to 1 meter (39.4 in) diameter in the range of 12 to 42 module (0.6 to 2.1 DP). This machine features tool wear compensation and 4 CNC work stations that can be configured as explained above. Lastly, these machines can also implement CNC tools for a full range of controllable chamfer.
TecnoMacchine is already used in Europe by gear manufacturers such as Koepfer and Getrag. Koepfer America is the exclusive source representing TecnoMacchine in North America.
