Gear cutting is any machining process for cutting a gear. The most common gear-cutting processes include hobbing, broaching, milling, and grinding. In the gear cutting process the cutter is formed according to the shape of the tooth. In the milling process a milling machine and a form cutter are used, which is passed through the gear blank to form the tooth gap. One main advantage of gear milling is that it can produce almost any type of gear.

Robotic automation is used to improve the efficiency of welding processes.
There are many advantages to Robotic Welding which include:
A robot has the ability to process welded components three to five times faster than a human. The fact that it operates continusously and can move quickly between weld joint positions allows a substantial increase in production.
Less Safety Risk
Due to hazards cause for welders, such as fume inhalation, electric shock, and dangerous exposure to the eyes from welders flash, robotic welding essentially removes this risk from indivduals.
A robotic welder provides superior qualityand ensures the correct welding angle, speed, and distance. Its accuracy is much higher for each weld joint and therefore reduces the risk of rework needing to occur.
Due to the accuracy of robotic welders less costs is required for rework, as well there no need to hire extra workers and purchase insurance for certain projects during busy times.
With an increase in production process, as well as quality, our robotic welders increase the competitive advantage for businsses. The ability to deliver products ahead of schedule and with such accuracy make robotic welding a long lasting investment.
