2022 Gear Technology Buyer's Guide

Intensive development at MHI has created simulation software that completely describes the cutting process for Super Skiving. This information creates optimal specifications for the cutting tool and cutting conditions. Multiple blade cutting tools were developed to dramatically improve tool life and reduce cycle times. The actual cutting action of the Super Skiving cutter is similar to the conventional pinion type tool. The advantage comes from the multiple blades for cutting the tooth space rather than just one cutting blade. By using a tapered roughing portion of the tool, all three blades are involved in cutting. For example, if a pinion cutter requires three cutting passes to create the gear, the super skive tool can remove the same amount of material with one pass because it has three times the number of cutting blades.
