Gear Shaping

Whether the requirement is planned or unplanned, development, low rate, or production in volume, Beacon has the internal structure to support rapid prototyping into full production.

The gear shaping processĀ uses a modified external gear as a cutting tool which reciprocates up and down to cut the teeth in the workpiece. Simultaneously, the tool and workpiece are also rotating proportionally to their gear ratio which emulate the rolling of two gears.
