In order to manufacture high quality precision gear blanks for gears such as spur gears, helical gears, worm gears and pinion gears as well as non-gear related CNC machined products, Buffalo Gear offers an in-house state of the art CNC turning facility with bar-feed capabilities. Also, In-House CNC milling with 4th Axis capability.
Bar-feeding on this machining equipment is ideal for high quality production runs, which allows us to offer you competitive pricing along with a precision machined product.
Precision machined cuts
Broaching and keyseating are methods used to create the keyways inside of a gear. By offering both gear manufacturing operations, we are able to select the best method for an individual production run. For example, Hydraulic pull style broaching is best used for short production runs.
Buffalo Gear has many standard keyway broaches in stock. Internal splines, hex, square and various irregular shapes can be produced with broaching. We also offer keyseating for larger keyways.
High Speed Broaching is cost effective
Accurate repetitive size control
Most economical way to produce irregular shapes in production runs
Standard tooling is readily available
High precision Sunnen manual hones and High Speed Automatic hones provide precision bores with repeatable accuracy; prototype to production.
High precision machined parts
Can be used with large or small quantities
Assure bore size for ease of assembly
Close tolerance is held for shaft and bearing fits
Sunnen technical support available for difficult or unique applications
