Gear Hobbing Department
This department provides the ability to produce precision pinions and gears to customers that require mechanical timing components and horological movements. Agma quality requirements of Agma 8 or better are achieved. Sizes range from watch movements to gears with a 2 1/2" diameter. Generation of tooth forms from one to several hundred teeth is performed with high micro finishes and dimensional accuracy. Included in this department are pivot burnishing equipment capable of holding tight tolerances and high micro finishes on shafts and arbors. Each gear or pinion uses master gears to accurately measure tooth-to-tooth and center distance dimensions.
