In order to chamfer the teeth of a gear wheel there are three important methods in the market: “Chamfer Cut”, roll chamfering and “Gratomat”. All of them have advantages but are not suitable in all situations. For such difficult chamfering operations and especially for smaller series a new method for accurate chamfers was created. The process is based on the geometry of the gear tooth and is simulated by mathematical calculations and therefore a special milling tool has to be manufactured for each individual gear wheel. With this tool is it possible to chamfer the teeth with very high quality in a short time and under economical conditions.
