Introduced under the HOBit brand, the new range incorporates a complete series of disc cutters, bore and shank type hobbing tools as well as shaper and power skiving cutters that can all be manufactured to customer specifications.

The new brand has been developed by the gear cutting experts at Hommel & Keller to cater for the rising demands of hobbing tools from end users familiar with the quality, precision and capability of the company’s specialist knurling tools and wheels that are well known as the Zeus brand.

As an industry leader in knurling products, Hommel & Keller has now developed its own hardening technology and PVD coating division.

The new HOBit gear cutting and hobbing tools are manufactured to customer demands with HSS, PM and solid carbide tools offered. Furthermore, the new HOBit series is available with a variety of coating technologies that include TiN, TiCN, TiAlN, nACo. nACo3 and nACRo with a host of alternate coatings available upon demand. This wealth of selection ensures that the new HOBit product lines can deliver optimum performance levels, long-lasting tool life and productivity.

The range of standard and specialised HOBit products can be suited to customer demands with geometries and tooth angles and the subsequent tooth numbers machined with precision. This level of precision extends to all facets of every product in the HOBit line up.
