Thinking differently the gears manufacturing

Being able to cut high-precision tooth profiles is of primary importance in gear cutting. Traditional processes (using "gear hobbers") involve some fundamental limits, both in the design and prototype phase, as well as when cutting the gear.

These systems are competitive only for large production runs, but are unsuitable for the production of prototypes or for small scale production (often the case with big gears) as the tools are very expensive, with long supply lead times, and the geometric refinement of the toothing (done by applying geometric micro-deviations to the theoretical tooth profile) is usually an extremely time-consuming process.

5-axis machining centre aren't affected by these limits as they use standard (cylindrical, toric or spherical) tools, and the development/prototyping processing is done using very precise software of the latest generation.

Breton's experience with 5-axis machine tools, precision mechanics and in the aerospace industry, has helped the company make a name for itself in the gear-cutting sector as a reliable and decisive partner, offering professional and innovative services.

In partnership with KISSSOFT - a leader in mechanical engineering software - we've developed the Breton Gear Design, a third generation geometry tool, guaranteeing the greatest accuracy and reliability.

Breton also developed the Breton Gear Cam, a CAM tool, so you can use just the right tool and strategy for every machining process.

This has been the approach with the Ultrix (tilting turning bench), Maxima and Titan (gantry and large-size turning bench) numeric controls, for an integrated turning, milling and tooth-cutting process, with pre and post heat treatment of medium-large gears (up to 2500 mm for one-piece gears).

The solution developed by Breton makes it possible for gear designers to design and produce gears quickly, using traditional 5-axis numeric controls, with excellent results:
- cylindrical gears with straight-cut or helical-cut teeth
- herringbone gears
- bevel gears with straight-cut and spiral-cut teeth in the most common geometries
- face gears for orthogonal drive trains
- skew-axis gears

As in the past, Breton puts its know-how and experience at the customer's service, developing innovative solutions destined to leave their mark in time.

  6. This is the reason why it is important to find quality gear cutting tools that can help in efficient cutting and shaping. There are many manufacturers that manufacture these tools today. It is crucial to find out a renowned manufacturer that can supply some of the highest qualities of tools of different kinds. As a result, it can ensure higher efficiency and functionality of the gear, as a whole.

  11. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.
