internal gear manufacturers



Low volume gear manufacturing is our speciality. This includes the development of prototypes for new and trial applications, either designed by ourselves or built to customer

The use of internal gear grinding to produce internal helical gears has been used extensively in prototypes for electric vehicles. We offer cost effective solutions for electric vehicles, epicyclic gearboxes & OEM's.

CNC Gear Cutting and Grinding



As leading gear manufacturers we have over 50 production machines. These machines range from our two Hofler CNC 1250XLs with internal gear grinding for spur and helical gears and splines through to 5 axis live tool CNC machines. Our plant portfolio consists of extensive gear hobbing, gear cutting, gear machining slotting, boring and grinding . For more information see our capacity list.

CMM quality control


We have two high technology coordinate measuring machines for capturing dimensions and independent verification of standards, profiles and quality.
In a temperature and humidity controlled environment our leading edge Brown and Sharp multi-sensor CMM machine with pallet loading can measure any object up to 900x1500x800mm.

Similarly, our CNC Wenzel LH2015 gear profile checker also delivers micron accuracy on gears up to 2500mm diameter.
