Koepfer America, L.L.C., will proudly introduce the CLC 200-SZ gear shaping machine at IMTS 2014. This machine will be the first of its model to meet the North American market, and it represents a competitive and fully customizable solution for high-precision, CNC gear shaping.

CLC has built gear shaping machines for gears up to 118” (3000 mm) diameter; however, the CLC 200-SZ can cut external gears up to 7.874” (200 mm) diameter and has a maximum rating of 5 DP (mn 5.0). The machine will also demonstrate standard features such as a CNC electronic guide, stroking speed of 1,000 strokes per minute, a movable cutting head, and 3.937” (100 mm) stroke length. The machine can also cut internal gears up to 11.811” (300 mm) diameter.

CLC machines distinguish themselves with a rigid construction for cutting high-precision parts. These gear shapers can also be customized for a customer’s specific application. For example, a tilting column can be provided for cutting tapered gears. Lastly, these machines utilize direct-drive torque motors, and, optionally, either Fanuc or Siemens CNC controls.

The CLC 200-SZ gear shaping machine will be Koepfer America’s featured new product at the show, accompanied by a Koepfer Model 160 gear hobbing machine and a Wenzel WGT 400 gear inspection machine. This group of demonstration machines will represent Koepfer America’s wide range of gear manufacturing products.
