Elliptical Spur Gear
Elliptical gears enable torque transmission with unequal transmission ratios. Applications include pick-and-place systems where a part must be gripped and set down slowly, but the movement in between is fast. Another example are adjustments where a finer setting is required in the centre position.
We manufacture elliptical gears according to customer drawings in a wide range of diameters and moduli by free-form milling from quenched and tempered steel or in case-hardened versions. Optionally, fine machining of the tooth flanks in quality 6 according to DIN3961 can also be carried out after hardening.
