Wiscon uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure precise cutting of the teeth for each gear. We know that precise dimensions are important for our clients to ensure each gear works properly. Most gears are cut by hobbing, because it is a quick and inexpensive process.
Gear shaping is a slower process than gear hobbing as each tooth is cut individually. This process allows for a variety of more complex types of gears. Gear shaping is useful for smaller batches as the cutting tools are more universal.
Broaching is used for high-volume production of odd shapes. Broaching cuts the workpiece with one swift movement to allow for roughing, semi-finishing, and finishing in one swift movement. Broaches are highly customized to ensure precise cutting with different size teeth for exactness.
Thread rolling is the best process for creating threads as it does not remove material but rather displaces it to create the threading. Parts created by thread rolling are proven to have higher strength and resistance to stripping than parts formed through other proccesses the cut the material to form the threads.
