Flexible & Innovative: Affolter Presents Gear Hobbing Center AF110


MALLERAY, Switzerland, Mar. 26, 2014 /PRN=KYODO JBN/ --

    -- Affolter Technologies SA, worldwide micro gear hobbing technology

leader, introduces the most flexible machine to date: The GEAR AF110 is

tailored to micromechanical industries.

    -- Highest precision and reliability meet short cycle times: Engineers of

the Swiss company designed the AF110 for optimum efficiency.

    Affolter Technologies SA (www.affoltergroup.ch), the technology and world

market leader in micro gear hobbing centers for the watchmaking and

micromechanical industries, presents its most recent innovation. "The GEAR

AF110 sets a new benchmark in regards to flexibility, high precision and

stiffness. It is tailored to the needs of all micro motor industries, such as

automotive, aircraft, dental and medical equipment, and watchmaking," states

Marc-Alain Affolter, Managing Director of the Swiss family enterprise. The

AF110 complements the existing GEAR product line towards the realization of

larger parts with diameters of up to 40mm and a module of up to 1.0mm.

    In 2010, the Affolter R&D team in Switzerland started to design the AF110.

The result is the most robust and flexible gear hobbing center to date.

"Compared to the AF100, we doubled the clamping force to 1000 newton. Torque

and stiffness of the spindles were increased, the Y-axis is more robust and

there is only one clamping axis moving, optimizing the overall rigidity and

minimizing vibrations," explains Mr. Affolter. The AF110 is very compact, using

the same base and volume as the AF100. With the introduction of this innovative

gear hobbing center, Affolter -- founded in 1919 -- reinforces its position as

worldwide technology leader.

    Flexibility a plus: worm milling

    The Affolter experts are currently developing the add-on "Unit 90": After a

quick changeover, the AF110 will be able to perform worm milling operations.

Marc-Alain Affolter: "We will introduce this optional feature in the second

part of 2014. The AF110 will be the most flexible machine for gear cutting and

worm milling on the market."

    Short cycle times: optimizing productivity

    The Affolter engineers aimed to reduce cycle times to make the machine as

productive as possible. The AF110 is equipped with the user-friendly,

internally developed CNC Leste control, making communication with the micro

gear hobbing center easy and quick. The compact design and the improved

rigidity are other key features that guarantee short cycle times and highest
