Hewland operates Kapp VX-55 gear grinding machines for manufacturing precision ground gears to extremely high tolerances and near perfect profiles. They are amongst the most precise machines we operate and are based on a modular system which is designed for the use of various tool technologies.
The machines are exclusively configured for profile grinding and by exchangeable grinding units, the KAPP machines can work both external and internal gears as well as spur and helical gears and other profiles. Hewland use these machines to manufacture gears for Formula 1 and other premier motorsport customers as well as high-efficiency transmissions for electric vehicles and performance automobiles.
Using our 60-years of experience to optimize gear designs and the Kapp VX gear grinding machines, Hewland can turn-around precision prototypes and small production runs quickly and cost effectively.
