According to Liebherr, the demand for suppliers to offer the soft machining of gears is increasing. “With the LC 280 α, Liebherr has developed a new generation of gear hobbing machines for such short-term requests”, reports Dr.-Ing. Hansjörg Geiser, Manager Development and Design, Gear Cutting Machines.

The newly developed gear hobbing machine enables users to machine gears and shafts with a workpiece diameter of up to 280mm and a shaft length of up to 500mm, Liebherr announced. Accoding to the company, the spindle speed was increased by 50% to 2250min−1 compared to the previous model.

“In the supplier business it is all about fast order decisions, relocations or order extensions”, states Karl Sauterleute, Sales Manager at Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH. “Liebherr can supply customers with the LC 280 α gear hobbing machine within three to four months.”(ros)
