Gear Shaving


Gear Shaving

Gear shaving is commonly applied in high-volume gear manufacturing, since it is a very cost-efficient finishing technology. Because it has already been so cost-efficient, this technology has barely been further developed in the last 30 years. For this reason, the gear manufacturing technology team of the WZL gear department has addressed gear shaving in technological studies.
