Heller uP-Gear horizontal machining centre-based gear machining, using Sandvik Coromant tooling

Bevel/conical gear machining using Heller uP-Gear process.

Heller's existing MCH series of machines is capable of producing bevel/conical gears up to 1,890 mm diameter. However, a new range is under development for gears up to some 3,000 mm diameter. The company's recently introduced uP-Gear Technology, developed in co-operation with German engineering group Voith and tooling specialist Sandvik Coromant, forms the cornerstone of the solution.
