Liebherr - ChamferCut - LD C Series

After chamfering with the patented ChamferCut technology, no additional machining is necessary. There is no need for a second cut, which is often required during the deformation-based deburring process for the removal of build-up material. With the chamfering process, the exact chamfer form is produced. In contrast to deformation-based processes, the material structure is not affected. An optimal starting point is created for the subsequent finishing of hardened gears, particularly gear honing. The quality of such chamfers defines a new standard – with maximum repetitive accuracy.

Chamfered edges of gears prevent damage during workpiece transport, heat treatment cracks and gear wear. They facilitate the assembly process and improve the tool life. Chamfering with ChamferCut delivers a high-quality chamfer with repetitive accuracy – and is more cost-effective compared to press deburring and deburring with end mills. Chamfering is very popular among car and commercial vehicle manufacturers, as well as in gear and engine manufacturing. The process can also be integrated into existing production systems.

The LD 180/280 C is the most powerful and most compact stand-alone chamfering machine on the market. Workpieces with a diameter of up to 280 mm and up to module 6 mm can be chamfered down to the tooth root easily and with precision. The machine is very easy to operate, and first centring is automatic.

For increased ergonomic and simplified set-up, it is possible to swivel the chamfer hob head by 90 degrees so that the tool can be easily inserted from either operator side.
