Gear teeth can be deburred relatively easily with brushes and discs, but there’s often no longer any scope for undefined chamfers at the tooth edges. Paul Horn GmbH (Tübingen, Germany) will customize a milling cutter and machining program to produce defined chamfers in various steels and aluminium for high-volume production. A turn-mill center with synchronized axes is required, but not special workholding equipment. The solid carbide tools can be clamped in a standard collet or shrink-fit and hydraulic chucks.
The service can, for example, be used to create a 45-degree chamfer on both sides of a module 1 gear wheel with 25 teeth in less than five seconds. Horn designs the cutting edge geometry, carbide substrate, and tool coating depending on gear tool material, tip diameter, and desired chamfer; and supplies the process data required for machining together with the cutter. Tool costs are low and quickly pay for themselves thanks to short machining times.
