Power Skiving Blanks

Specialized tools that combine hobbing and shaping operations are versatile and productive for making internal and external gears.

Power skiving blanks are specialized tools for producing internal and external gears. They are especially effective for machining internal gears. Power skiving blanks combine the principles of both hobbing and shaping to make high-precision gears, splines, and other complex tooth profiles.

Power skiving blanks are designed to fit into a tool holder of any CNC machine, making it a low-cost investment. Typically made from carbide or high-speed steel (HSS), power skiving blanks feature cutting edges that correspond to the tooth shape required for the specific gear or spline being produced. Hyperion manufactures carbide power skiving blanks that can withstand the high cutting forces involved in power skiving, last longer, and produce more parts before they must be resharpened.

The process of using power skiving blanks is extremely versatile and fast, increasing productivity in gear manufacturing. This process offers improved quality at a lower cost and is 4 to 10 times more product than shaping. It is a low-cost, high-speed, effective alternative to conventional gear-cutting methods.
