Power-shaving trials

Power-shaving trials produced parts to evaluate the tool life time and geometrical accuracy. The parts can be compared to current shaving process. In addition, laboratory tests on gearboxes test bench were performed to validate the running behaviour of parts produced by power-shaving.

It was demonstrated that power-shaving allows to reduce the machining time by increasing cutting parameters with similar tool life time as in current production and with acceptable pitting life time.
