PRODUCT SHOWCASE: CNC Gear Cutting Added To 2D CNC’s Portfolio


2D CNC Machinery has added S&T Dynamics' range of gear cutting machinery and related automation equipment to its portfolio of metal cutting CNC machining centers, cell-and-system technology.

S&T Dynamics is a manufacturer of automotive and military powertrain, axles, and transmissions that include gearboxes for helicopters, wind-power applications, dual-clutch transmissions, and hybrid power trains. It also supplies both civil and military aerospace, medical, and general sectors.

As the company is a precision gear manufacturer, it has developed and builds its own gear-cutting machine tools — a sub-division of its larger global CNC machine tool build operations. Machines can be supplied as complete turn-key packages, including production of crowned gears, tapered gears, skiving, and deburring. In addition, associated automation can include ring loaders, stockers, conveyors, and robotic loading. Gear cutting machines include hobbing, shaping, and shaving processes plus a range of gear chamfering and deburring equipment. Initially, 2D CNC will be marketing and supporting the high-speed hobbing machine range.

"The S&T Dynamics agency is an important addition to 2D CNC's portfolio of high quality and specialist CNC machining equipment, and like the existing product ranges we represent, has very strong links to leading manufacturing enterprises around the world," said Director David Holden.
