Power Skiving – efficient technology for the production of gears
Power Skiving is a technologically advanced machining approach that enables the production of complex tooth shapes with exceptional precision and efficiency. Combined with appropriate tools, this method opens up new opportunities for manufacturers who are looking for innovative solutions for the production of high-quality crown wheels and gears.
Since the inception of the concept of Power Skiving in 1910, this method has been recognized as potentially more efficient than the traditional slotting method for machining most internal gear wheels. However, the widespread implementation of this method became possible only when milling machining centers were created that enabled the synchronization of the rotation of the tool with the workpiece. This is an essential element of this technology, requiring the use of properly matched machining centers and spindles that are fully synchronized with each other.
Thanks to full synchronization in the machining process, the tool engages with the workpiece. It is pushed axially towards its axis, its front (often called a chisel) peels off the profile of the wheel being produced. During the process of creating the ring gear, the cutting speed Vc is generated by the appropriate inclination of the tool during machining, and consists of:
- tool feed relative to the workpiece axis,
- rotational speed of the workpiece and tool (the proportion resulting from the gear ratio is imposed),
- angle between tool and workpiece (typically between 15° and 25°)

Efficient technology guaranteeing excellent precision
Power Skiving has attracted particular interest from gear manufacturers for several reasons. First, it is a high-productivity method that potentially outperforms traditional methods in terms of speed and efficiency. Secondly, widespread implementation of Power Skiving has only become possible relatively recently. Why? The current development of milling machining centers enables precise synchronization of tool rotation with the rotation of the workpiece. It is crucial for the proper course of the cutting process and for achieving optimal results.
