Coated gear hobs

Gear making is an expensive proposition and the most costly part of your operation is likely your hobs.  Wear and tear on these high-priced items can spell disaster for gear creation.

Avoid the tooth profile changes that come from extended hob use. Choose deep cryogenic treatment for better durability and longer lifespan. Learn how deep cryogenic treatment of these expensive tools works with help from Controlled Thermal Processing.

How it Works on Hobs

Cryogenic treatment is proven to give hobs up to five times the life they would normally have. Controlled Thermal Processing treats hobs for some of the best gear makers around, especially in the racing industry.  

Treating hobs and other cutting tools gives many of our clients a big competitive advantage over other companies in the industry, and with less maintenance and downtime, they enjoy saving time and money.  Deep cryogenic treatment helps these companies reduce their consumable tooling costs while increasing the quality of their products.

Groundbreaking Technology

Our deep cryogenic processing of hobs is currently one of the newest advances that improve the performance beyond what was possible ever before. Deep cryogenic treatment works on HSS and carbide hobs.  It enhances coatings. The use of cryogenics on carbide has been the subject of a considerable number of college, university, government, and industry research papers.
