Hobboing is an essential industrial process for developing gears. This machining process of gear cutting is done on a hobbing machine with the help of two skew spindles. Compared to another type of gear forming machining process it is relatively inexpensive coupled and can be used for a broad range of quantities and parts manufacturing. Hobbing is the most broadly used for universal gear applications such as for developing helical and spur gears. Gears are available in several types, size, and the material is broadly used in various systems and machines. The major applications of gears include speed gear box, feed gear box, speed initiatives in textile machines, gear boxes of automobiles, machines used for mining, processing industry, industrial robots and toys, gear box in cement, sugar industry, and much more. The gear hobbing machines have a less number of tools, work motions, and are much more rigid, productive, and strong compared to other machines such as gear shaping machine.
Factors such as growing industrial automation, expanding automotive industry, innovative technology, growing demand for light weight gear used in automobiles are expected to driving the growth of the global gear hobbing machines market. Moreover, growing 3D printing technology for manufacturing gears, rise in demand for vehicles with advanced features and expanding technical centers to meet the growing demand are some of the primary factors driving the growth of the gear hobbing machines market over the forecast period. However, it is only used for cutting straight or helical teeth of external spur gears as well as worm wheels, having lesser accuracy as well as finishing, and growing industrial standards may limit the growth of the gear hobbing machines market during the forecast the period.
