Höfler Cylindrical Gear Roll Testing Machine R 300
The Gear Noise Finder
Due to the increasing outsourcing of component production in large-scale transmission manufacturing, some transmission and vehicle manufacturers now require a certificate of quality for all gears installed in the powertrain. To meet this challenge, Klingelnberg is building on roll testing technology, a familiar method from the bevel gear industry that is now moving into the world of cylindrical gears.
Compact design with minimal footprint
Workpiece spectrum similar to Speed Viper series
One test machine for gear and shaft components
Available roll testing methods: single flank test, structure-borne noise and angular acceleration test, double-flank and helix roll test
Direct drives in spindles and test slides
Test speeds up to 3,000 rpm
Machine can be used in the GearLab as well as on the shop floor
the New Dimension for Highly Productive Generating Grinding
The Speed Viper platform is making Klingelnberg a pioneer in Industry 4.0 – and showing what cost savings and increases in efficiency are possible. Designed for high productivity and robustness of the grinding process, the Speed Viper family meets all the indispensable requirements of modern large-scale production operations: short set-up times, minimum cycle times, innovative software solutions, and digital process control in a Closed Loop system.
Highly productive generating grinding thanks to intelligent machine designs and a robust machine base
Available in four different configurations based on individual requirements
Minimal auxiliary times
Short set-up times thanks to automatic tool clamping system
Reliable Process Design & Analysis for Grinding Processes
In cylindrical gears, the flank profile design is created based on the function, without taking a potential manufacturing process into account. But can the desired modifications actually be manufactured? In Gear Designer, the manufacturable geometry is determined through simulation of the dressing and grinding process. Integrated optimization algorithms adapt the manufacturable geometry to fit the specification through targeted modification of the dressing and grinding process kinematics.

Quality Management with Closed Loop for Cylindrical Gears
With its Closed Loop approach, Klingelnberg has developed an exceptional solution for the process chain in cylindrical gear manufacturing. Networking of Speed Viper with the Klingelnberg Precision Measuring Centers ensures the quality of the production process. With the analysis options of the P machine software, particularly the waviness analysis option, the causes of noise problems can be quickly pinpointed, providing the right tools for electric powertrain production.
Leading manufacturers around the world put their trust in Klingelnberg measuring centers, which represent the most widely used standard in the industry, while also serving as the reference for metrology institutes
Replaces up to six measuring devices in one clamping
High measuring accuracy as a basis for testing drive components of the highest quality
Machine design suitable for use on the production floor
Simple, safe operation of the measuring centers for all applications
