Fässler Gearing Honing Systems
Gear honing, because of its economical feasibility, has become an essential part in the production of high-speed transmissions. This is especially true in the automotive and truck industry as honed gears, in comparison to ground gears, are extremely quiet and have excellent wear characteristics due to their typical surface finish. Recently, Fässler has taken the gear honing process a step further and has enhanced the economic feasibility and increased the process capability. Of special interest are the tool developments, machine developments and new process strategies which were adapted specifically to the customers’ needs due to results of computer simulations in conjunction with the know-how over many years.
The new Fässler HMX-400 Gear Honing Machine was brought on the market incorporating all these developments and know-how. With this machine, our customers are able to finish high quality gears directly after hobbing and heat-treating very rapidly and economically. The costs per part are close to green shaving – but with the quality advantages of a hard finishing process!
The Fässler brand has been a part of the MDC Max Daetwyler AG Group of companies in Bleienbach, Switzerland, since March 1, 2014.
