Helios Hera 90 CNC gear hobbing machine with unified gantry automation

Helios NEOPS 400 CNC gear power skiving machine

Helios carbide gear cutting tools: hobs, shaper cutters, broaches and milling cutters

CNC gear chamfer-deburring

Helios Gear Products will exhibit its latest gear manufacturing solutions at the Motion+Power Technology Expo, September 14-16 at America's Center in St. Louis, MO.

Manufacturers will see a Hera 90 CNC gear hobbing and thread (worm) milling machine with unified gantry automation. This machine offers a single platform for automatically hobbing and milling parts up to approximately 3.5" O.D. With its 6,000 RPM cutter spindle, the machine productively handles small parts with small hobs by maximizing surface speeds. This high-speed spindle also enables productive milling of worms. Moreover, this machine will demonstrate its versatile, easy-to-set-up automation system for fine-pitch gear manufacturing.

Also in the Hera series of hobbing machines, show attendees will learn about the model 350 vertical hobbing platform for parts up to approximately 15" O.D. The 350 offers several options for an optimized solution, such as 2- or 4-station ring loaders, re-hobbing abilities, automation systems and more. Helios offers the Hera models 500 and 750 for parts up to approximately 30" O.D. For manufacturers of fine and ultra-fine pitch gears, the Hera 30 features dual direct-drive work spindles and a 10,000 RPM hob spindle for productive hobbing of parts up to approximately 1.6" O.D.

For productive manufacturing of internal gears, Helios will feature the Neo Power Skiving (NEOPS) line. This series of machines, which includes the models 100, 200 and 400, produces internal or external gears for parts up to approximately 16.5" O.D. "Compared to traditional shaping, a NEOPS can produce precision gears in a fraction of the time, making it a go-to choice for manufacturers of internal gears. Show attendees will really want to stop by and learn about the Neo power skiving machine, which offers this cutting-edge technology at a fraction of the price compared to competitors in the market," said David Harroun, Helios Vice President.

Helios will also feature the 2021 CNC upgrades to its line of Tecnomacchine (TM) gear deburring machines. The TM series now offers manufacturers complete CNC programming of the chamfer-deburring process. This includes tool position (radial, axial, tangential and inclination), tool pressure, tool rotation speed, tool rotation direction, workpiece rotation direction and workpiece rotation speed. This allows manufacturers to store a complete application to later be recalled by the CNC with just a few software steps. Consequently, changeover time reduces to a few minutes rather than the traditional 30-45 minutes. Moreover, it lowers the bar for personnel training, altogether making the machine investment more flexible and productive for high-mix gear manufacturing.

Helios also offers cutting and abrasive tools, including hobs, milling cutters, shaper cutters, continuous generating grinding wheels, form (single-profile) grinding wheels, bevel gear grinding cups, diamond dressing gears and more.
