We upgrade MAAG gear grinding machines based on the 0° grinding method by incorporating our topological control systems - with levels up to CNC. A data-compatible substitute for MAAG-topology ES 422 is also available. Suitable MAAG gear grinding machines are:

  • HSS 30
  • SD-32-X
  • SD-36-X
  • HSP-80
  • HSS 90
  • others on request

SD-32-X or SD-36-X base machines in stock

Basics

The involute profile is generated by the gear rolling relative to and in contact with the two dish grinding wheels. This ensures pitch independent grinding wheels and simultaneous grinding of two flanks.

The workpiece is reciprocated in the axial direction to provide the feed motion. Indexing takes place at the end of each stroke of the feed carriage. Two tooth flanks are ground during each such cycle. The depth of cut is determined by the infeed of the grinding wheels.

For grinding helical gears, the column of the machine carrying the cross beam with the grinding heads is swivelled through the base helix angle ßb and an additional rotary motion is imparted to the workpiece in proportion to the axial feed.

The grinding heads can be adjusted in the direction parallel to the tooth flank so that they establish contact with the workpiece simultaneously. This keeps the feed carriage stroke to a minimum.

Operation

Software for input and analysis of topological forms for grinding by the 0° method. Operator aid via graphical area for easy setting and compiling of topological corrections directly on the machine.

Ideal to grind easy a helix bias modification!

Special features:

  • Program for the analysis of topological grinding data for minimizing the grinding wheel thinning. For the zero-degree grinding method.
  • The works-internal webbing of the machines (Data exchanges).
  • Integration of measuring results from external measuring machines as feedback for the production of topological forms.
  • The back-up of the technology data of the company server.
  • A user-friendly graphical surface for the operator via touch-screen.
  • Reliable and maintenance convenient machine control system on a field bus basis (Fiber- Optics)

Result

Reproducible topological corrections on tooth flanks, with short set-up times, highly precise, and at economical cost. Different topological corrections can be ground on the left and the right flank simultaneously.

Applicable for:

  • Shaving cutters
  • Dressing tools
  • Prototype gears
  • Diamond dressing gears (DDG)
  • Rolling dies
  • Master gears
  • etc.
