Gear Hobbing

Gear hobbing is one of the key processes in gear manufacturing. In this process, a gear tooth is manufactured by the repetitive and combined motions of a cutting tool and a workpiece. During the process, both the hob cutter, as well as the workpiece will continuously rotate in a synchronized motion. At Motor & Gear Engineering, Inc., we are equipped with advanced hob cutting equipment, which enables us to meet the diverse complex requirements of our clients.
