Fellows Gear Shapers set the standard for gear shaping machines throughout the last century. Bourn & Koch acquired Fellows in 2002, building new versions of the classic 10-4 gear shaper and furthering the technology of models such as the Hydrostroke™ HS series of gear shapers and developing the MS series of mechanical shapers. As an authority on the subject of gear shaping, Fellows produced a series of informational videos on the art of generating gears, with a focus on gear shaping.
Gear shaping is still one of the more prominent methods of generating a gear. Our new Fellows Gear Shapers provide a machine tool designed to last for decades, just as the original Fellows Gear Shapers have. The addition of new technologies like electronic helical guides and Oriented Stiffness Backoff™ make our new Fellows Gear Shapers the obvious choice for your next gear shaping machine. Bourn & Koch continues the tradition of building and rebuilding Fellows Gear Shapers at our Rockford, Illinois plant. Countless machines have been successfully built and serviced by Bourn & Koch over the last four decades. Fellows Gear Shapers are one of our core specialties, offering new gear shapers, rebuilt machines, and professional service for your Fellows Gear Shaper.
This video is a great introduction to generating gears. If you want to learn more about gear generation and production, AGMA offers an excellent class on the basics of gear manufacturing. The next class scheduled for April, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. To learn more about AGMA and the classes they offer, visit their website – www.agma.org.
