Lothar Horn on the gear cutting campaign with DMG MORI

For us, gear cutting is a central application in many respects. Most people think of gears as a gearbox containing gear wheels. Technically, this is also an image that we immediately see when it comes to gears, but the topic goes further. We are closely involved with our customers and partners and especially with machine manufacturers in this area. We complement each other, exchange ideas and work hand in hand to implement new machining solutions and drive developments forward – we make a difference.

Without gears, our world today would be unimaginable. Gears meshing with other gears transfer torque from one shaft to another and change speed and direction of rotation. They convert linear movement into rotary movement and vice versa. They connect rotary axes at different angles to each other, transmitting torque positively and without slippage. In gearboxes, they increase or decrease the speed and torque many times over. Precise watch movements comprising many micron-precise gears move the hands of mechanical wristwatches with the highest degree of accuracy, while powerful gearboxes transmit several thousand kW of power. In short: gear teeth move the world.

In order to be able to realise their production, not only special machines are used nowadays but increasingly also universal turning machines and machining centres with corresponding cutting cycles and precision tools.
