The Wafer Shaper Cutters are designed for high production
applications in external or internal gears and splines of spur or
low helix angle configurations.
The highly efficient cutting geometry of these cutters gives real
increases in productivity on standard or CNC gear shapers. The
cutter is an assembly consisting of a replaceable Wafer blade,
accurately held by a Clamp and Backup Ring.
Tools run faster and stay on the machine longer. No machine setting
changes are required at tool changeover - cutters are easily
assembled by clamping them between clamp and backup ring (see
picture). The Wafer Shaper Cutter is suited to high production
applications where it can be justified on a cost per part basis,
when compared against the costs associated with resharpening and
recoating conventional cutters.
