Project Description

W100 fully retrofitted in AF100


fully retrofitted

The AF100 is a 7 axis CNC Gear Hobbing Machine. It is equipped with the Leste 12 CNC control. The AF100 can cut straight, helical, tapered or convex teeth on gears, shafts and pinions, either by the generating or indexing method of hobbing. The cutter and the workpiece are driven by motor spindles (direct drive) and can be synchronized electronically at rotation speeds of up to 16,000 rpm. The linear axes have direct measurement scales for position feedback, guaranteeing a resolution of 0.5 μm. Positioning of hob shifting are programmable and completely Automatic.
