In 2002, Bourn & Koch, Inc. acquired the Fellows Gear Shapers. Since then, we have continued their tradition of remanufacturing world-class gear shaping machines in our Rockford, Illinois plant. You can learn more about Edwin R. Fellows and the history of the Fellows Gear Shaper Company by clicking here. We are located just a few short miles from where Barber-Colman built their world-famous gear hobber. Our new lines of Fellows Gear Shaper can shape gears to AGMA class 10 without grinding. Cutting gears to that level of excellence starts with the precise remanufacture and reassembly of our machines. Our in-house machining capabilities combined with precision assemblers ensure that every Fellows gear shaper we rebuild is well-crafted and designed to last.
Bourn & Koch remanufactures Fellows Gear Shapers in either mechanical or Hydrostroke™ vertical stroking configurations. We remanufacture classic Fellows Gear Shapers like the 10-4 and the 20-4, re-engineered and built to accommodate today’s rigorous gear manufacturing standards. . Our conversational HMI guides the operator through the gear shaping process, reducing specialized training required to run the machine. Designed to cut internal and external spur and helical gears, Fellows Gear Shapers are a versatile tool crafted by precision machine tool builders with decades of experience.
