The PHOENIX® 1000HC Bevel Gear Cutting Machine is a premier machine tool integrating high-speed computer controls and software for full automatic setup and operation. This machine is the first bevel gear cutting machine with this capacity which eliminates the conventional mechanical setups. A powerful controller simplifies the complex geometrical machine settings and coordinates all machine movement necessary for gear manufacturing in only six axis of motion. Setup and changeover are minimal; no mechanical adjustments are required. PHOENIX delivers greater flexibility with improved accuracy and repeatability.
