The Gear AF101 is an advanced Gear Hobbing Center that offers total automation The AF101 is designed on the base of the AF100 with a larger enclosure and protective guarding, which allows a high degree of automation with robot and additional operations such as the palletized part feed and management system, and integrated parts cleaning and/or measurement of the blank and finished cut parts.

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.
