Improved productivity thanks to high-speed gear skiving

  • High accuracy gear skiving is realized thanks to unique INTEGREX AG control technology
  • Rotation of both the main spindle and the milling spindle is synchronized up to the top speed of both spindles to ensure high accuracy gear skiving.

Internal spline cutting applications - INTEGREX i-200ST AG

Thanks to INTEGREX i-200ST AG synchronized control technology, productivity is 6 times higher when compared to conventional internal spline processing. Additionally, with higher speed operation cutting resistance is reduced for higher accuracy


The hob arbor is held on one end by the heavy-duty milling spindle providing sufficient rigidity for high accuracy gear hobbing. With Smooth Gear Hobbing, gear specification data are input to automatically generate the tool path.

Hob Shift   Modified gear lead and gear crowning
This function shifts the contact point of the hob and workpiece to extend tool life.   By inputting data for a modified gear lead or gear crowning, the tool path for gear hobbing is automatically generated.

Using Smooth Gear Milling software, gear teeth can be cut one by one by a standard endmill. Gear specification data, including data for modified gears as well as modified gear lead and modified gear profile, are input to automatically generate the tool path.


Once a gear has been machined, deburring of front and end edges can be performed with a standard ball-nosed endmill. In cases where the phase of the gear is unknown (such as after gear hobbing), Smooth gear measuring can be used to discover where the tooth gap is before the deburring process takes place.

Gear Measurement

Gear tooth radial in-phase location

After using a new or reground tool, a gear tooth can be probed by a touch sensor to determine the required amount of compensation.
This same process can also be used to determine the in-phase positioning of other machined features, such as deburring using a ball endmill or locating a bore on a workpiece face. Accuracy of the in-phase positioning is ± 0.005 degrees (16 μm (0.00063"on a 360 mm (14.17") diameter).

Gear profile and gear lead measurement (Option)

Gear face measurement by scanning probe
  • The gear profile and gear face are inspected by a scanning probe after machining in the same workpiece setup.
  • Conventionally, gears are machined on special-purpose gear cutting machinery and then are transferred to measurement equipment in another location. This is eliminated by the optional gear profile and gear lead measurement software.
