Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool, a builder of gear cutting machines and double-column machining centers, launched gear hobbing machines “GE15HS” and “GE25HS” in June 2021.
The GE series is the flagship series of gear hobbing machines, which have been on sale by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tools since 2004. HS stands for High Speed, and both new machines are good at high machining efficiency.
GE15HS enables gear machining with a maximum diameter of 150 mm. The maximum rotation speed of the spindle by the direct drive spindle is 6000 rpm, which is three times faster than the conventional one. The target is mass production of gears for automobiles and motorcycles.
GE25HS enables gear machining with a maximum diameter of 250 mm. The maximum rotation speed of the spindle is 2300 rpm, which is 1.5 times that of the conventional one. The target is mass production of large gears such as automobile differential gears.
