This machine is being upgraded to have a Fanuc 0i-MF CNC with 4 axes under CNC control, X (Radial), Y (Tangential), Z (Axial), C (Worktable) and then a CNC controlled spindle B (Hob Rotation). The hob setting angle is currently manually adjusted but can be converted to CNC as an option if you are interested. The hob head has been motorized to remove the long drive train and will be equipped with a 15kW Fanuc Alpha series spindle motor, and given a 20:1 reduction ratio, that's roughly 7000Nm of torque to the hob spindle. The hob head has already been rebuilt, and we will address any issues we find in the worktable also. The control will be fully conversational based with our renowned shop floor programming solution for gear hobbing.
The software will allow for triple pass cutting, programmable directions, taper correction, crowning with offset capability, shifting control, basic form milling (gashing) capability, radial plunge cycle, short lead hobs corrections, measuring over pins size corrections and a lot more.
The machine has a 2-Start worm worktable worm which was usually purchased for higher table speeds for pinion hobbing.
Since the machine is currently undergoing the conversion process it is a good time to add special capabilities and features to the machine to customize it for your specific needs. The machine as is does not have a tailstock, but if you desire one we can install one for you with the arm configured like you require will all respective tooling and functions.
his machine is fully serviced and supported by the Pfauter experts at MTB.
