Gear Hobbing Machine Cut Cycle Time from 4 Hours to ½ Hour

After a soft launch of the Hera series gear hobbing machines during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Helios Gear Products is officially debuting the leading Hera 90 and Hera 350 to the North American market at IMTS.

The Hera CNC gear hobbing machines support micro- to coarse-pitch gear manufacturing applications with world-leading technical features such as complete Fanuc CNC and direct-drive torque motors, X-axis linear scales, easy-to-use (and train) dialog programming, and versatile unified automation systems.

"Manufacturers have found the Helios Hera CNC hobbing machines to be extremely cost-effective, high-quality platforms for 21st century gear production," said David Harroun, Vice-President of Helios Gear Products.

With several transformative installations across the United States, the Helios team will be demonstrating the capabilities of the Hera gear hobbing machines to the North American public for the first time at IMTS.

Jeff Kamps, Helios customer and President at Wisconsin Gear & Machine, says, "We've cut our cycle times down from 4 hours to 0.5 hour. It's really been beneficial for Wisconsin Gear. With the shortage of people, it's really made a big difference; we can still get a large volume of work done in a timely manner."
