Gear with synchronising wheel
One look at a typical gearwheel shows the machining challenges involved. Even a small wheel with integrated synchronous gear is a relatively complex construction.
To efficiently produce it at the highest precision, two different components need to be made first. This is followed by the joining and welding process that combines them.
In modern transmission manufacture the welding is done by lasers – a process that allows for the energy of the laser beam to be exactly dosed and concentrated on the welding point. It ensures that any warping is minimal and the welding speed is as high as possible. The welding method used by EMAG employs solid state lasers, which makes it exceptionally energy-efficient.
