Automatic cutting is a necessary stage in the process of development of toothed wheels and other machinery components. It takes various forms, including chiselling as offered by our company. What is it exactly? How does it occur, and what is its purpose? We invite you to study this document, in which we will include answers to questions concerning the service we offer.
As was already said, this is a kind of cutting or machining process, meaning, a material removal process that is applied to remove excess material. This method is used to provide the surface of the material with a specific shape.
This technology entails the cutting of the material with a special, automatic tool. The processing machine, the called the chiselling machine or shaper, is equipped with a rotary table with a scale, allowing the precise angular arrangement of the processed item. The key components of the machine are the single-blade knife and the slider, to which the knife is fixed.
The blade touches the processed material directly, and the slider carries out the necessary automatic reciprocal motion along the vertical or horizontal axis, allowing the blade to carry out the surface processing work.
The machine is also equipped with a scale that is used to make subdivisions for spline joints, such as the ones toothed wheels have.
The automatic machine allows for quick and precise cutting of robust and hard materials, e. g. metals such as steel, bronze or brass, as well as synthetic materials.
The executed incisions have a regular cross-section – a square, hexagon or grooves.
In specific cases, the chiselling may be the sole component of cutting, allowing one to achieve the ultimate, required product shape. It may also be linked e. g. with grinding or milling.
