This machine is recontrol or recertification with SIEMENS 828 Advance Syatem Exactly as per Liebherr Standards . The Old Original Liebherr CNC System Is replaced . All recontrolled and recertified machines are fully cleaned. All moving slides, spindles and parts handling systems are inspected for problems. Any gibs or adjustable backlash systems are adjusted to the best possible settings. All hydraulic, coolant, lubrication and pneumatic systems are checked for proper functionality and leaks.  All filters are replaced. All worn hoses, broken cables, connectors, buttons, lamps and wires are replaced. All guarding is installed and checked. All machine cycles are tested. Parts are cut to verify the machine capability. Charts from the test cutting are documented for your viewing.

  • The electronic synchronization of the generating process, (i.e. hob & table rotation), is integrated 
     in the CNC-system.


  • Helix generation, (i.e. linking of the axial slide movement and table rotation, as well as tangential 
    hobbing), (i.e. linking of tangential movement and table rotation), integrated in the CNC-system.


  • Copy system for "crowning" and end relief are part of the CNC-system, (i.e. linkage of radial and    
    axial motion) linear and circular interpolation, max. radius 328 ft. (100M).


  • Feeds programmable in mm or inches/table revolution, feeds, constant with changes in hob speed, 
    separate overrides for feeds and speed (infinite) between 10% and 133%, altering of feed and speeds 
    during hobbing allows optimization of cutting condition.


  • CNC-system, free programmable for individual cycles, input via keyboard.


  • Parametric programming with 90-variable and 10-fixed parameters.


  • Parametric programs for 32 different fixed cycles repeatedly used for hobbing: (one-cut cycle, two-cut cycle, with or without radial approach, climb or conventional hobbing, with or without  shifting, radial or tangential hobbing, fixed cycles for crowning or taper hobbing). Programs with degressive approach.


  • Software for calculation of approach, overrun, & crowning data, (crowning radius & radius location).


  • Software for single-index milling (programmable in mm or inches).


  • CMOS-technique for approx. 100 part programs (components), depending on complexity of programs (32,000 characters) w/optional expansion of CMOS memory to 128K.


Parallel programming, (ability to program for different work pieces while machine is running)
data I/O via RSR-232C connector to or from a peripheral device (tape reader/puncher, magnetic
cassette, or data terminal). DNC capable.


Logic capability with feasibility checks, (i.e. max./min. machine parameters are automatically  scanned when new programs are made). All information displayed on CRT screen (with 8-lines and 32 characters per line), input via keyboard.


Keyboard input for the following parameters:   ( smallest increment )   


 No. of teeth  






No. of hob starts             






Helix angle

  • Electronic hand-wheel for manual control of any linear axis motion, including table rotation
    miscellaneous (M-functions), coolant on/off, work piece clamping/unclamping, overhead work support up/down.


  • Diagnostic capability with faults displayed on the CRT, while monitored on PC-controller, AC servo motors, rotational relationship, emergency stop.


  • Controlled emergency shutdown (in case of disturbance or failure of main drive motor, failure of single measuring systems, or within the hydraulic area), the electronic synchronization of the   
    generating process is maintained until rotary motions have ceased.


  • Full complement of electrics (motors/control-cabinet) including two-hand safety start button for cycle start and machine set-up (presently arranged for 235 or 470 volt, 3-phase, 60-cycles), control voltage primary 110 AC, secondary 24 DC, single phase) SIEMENS-ALLIS and SIEMENS power controls.


  • Coolant filtration and thermostatic controlled oil chiller for hydraulic and cutting fluids.


  • Air-conditioner for control cabinet.


  • Complete coolant equipment pump & piping.


  • Full machine enclosure with splash guards/covers, safety interlock on splash guard door.


  • CHEMAPERM magnetic chip conveyor w/chip cart and oil return hose.


  • Minimum of one (1) hob arbor and hydraulic lock-nut.


  • One set of fixators (machine leveling shoes).


  • Full machine documentation, operator's manuals for machine and controller, wiring & hydraulic 
    diagrams, parts lists, and foundation/layout drawings.
