Gear Hobbing & Broaching of Planetary Ring Gear for the Off Road Industry
Butler Gear Enterprises, LLC. was approached by a client from the off-road industry who needed gear hobbing and broaching for a planetary ring gear. Using modern gear hobbing and broaching equipment, Butler Gear hobbed (3 Module, 25°PA, 60 teeth) and broached (12/24, 30° PA, 36 teeth) a total of 320 gears.
The 180mm in outside diameter and 70mm long planetary ring gears weighed 12 lbs each. Throughout manufacturing, we held tightest tolerances within ±.2mm and a circular runout of .1mm.
