The Gear AF100 is a CNC Gear Hobbing Center with 12 axes control. The AF100 is equipped with our advanced current technology Leste 12 axes CNC control and is designed to hob spur and helical pinions, splines, straight bevel gears, and crown face gear wheels by either generative or single index cutting methods.

High Productivity and Versatility

High productivity gain thanks to a decrease of idle time and very
fast cutting speed :

Max. Speed Cutting Spindle: 16'000 rpm
Automatic Angle of Inclination: +/-30°

Simple and User Friendly

Equipped with the Affolter Leste CNC-control, it provides powerful processing and warranty, reduces cycle times and extremely fast interpolation. Its programming is simple and easy.
