Unique Gear Chamfering solution for high mix production
The Flexmill Gear Chamfering solution is focused on small and medium size batch volumes from one piece to up to a few hundred of the same gears per year. The solution can process industrial gear wheels from 100mm to up to 1500mm, which typically are used in marine, offshore, energy, mining, and many other types of industrial solutions.
Especially when dealing with a high mix of products and small batch sizes, the chamfering and finishing of gear wheels are very often done manually. Flexmill’s solution automates this normally very messy and mundane manual work process. The automated process ensures better and more consistent quality. In addition, the work environment is much safer and more comfortable for operators.
With the Flexmill solution, productivity can be drastically increased, while also greatly cutting lead times when compared to manual chamfering and finishing.
Flexmill’s Gear Chamfering solution is an extremely flexible production cell with quick and easy programming. The programming time of a new gear wheel is less than 3 minutes and set-up can be completed without any robotic programming skills thanks to the easy-to-use user interface for parameter entry.
1. Machined gear wheel with burrs
2. Gear wheel design parameters entry and automatic probe measurement
3. Automatic robot path generation based on parameters and measured values
4. Robotic chamfering and finishing
5. High quality, chamfered and finished gear wheel
The modular Flexmill concept is applicable to parts of different shapes and sizes
made of a variety of materials. Our solutions run small series and even single piece
manufacturing with the speed and accuracy of mass production.
