Cylindrical Gear Solutions Isoform Shaper Cutter
Isoform Shaper Cutter
The Isoform generating process rolls the cutter from side to side as the profiled grinding wheel reciprocates through the tooth space. This method generates both sides simultaneously, resulting in a truer cutting geometry and higher quality of gears and other shaped forms through the life of the cutter.
The Isoform grind method grinds the OD of the cutter teeth simultaneously, and perfectly concentric, with the tooth profile. At the tooth tips, it generates a tip contour that is consistent in cutting geometry from front to back. The result is stronger workpiece teeth (for minimum component size) with greater product design flexibility!
The Isoform grind method generates true involute forms as well as non-involute forms both with consistent geometry from front to back. Isoform shapers are available with wider-than-usual usable faces. Except for the unavoidable change in geometry inherent in the shaping process, there is no theoretical limit to the face width of an Isoform shaper cutter. The result is a longer tool life with more workpieces per shaper!Request More Information
