QUINDOS Hob Cutter

For measurement of single and multi thread hobs with parallel or helical flutes on high accuracy Coordinate Measuring Machines. All evaluations as required by DIN 3968. In addition to DIN, also axial pitch and tooth height can be measured.

QUINDOS Shaper Cutter

All evaluations at shaper cutters with cone or step type cutting face as required by DIN 1829. Evaluates angles at the cutting edge, profile, helix, pitch, runout and thickness.

QUINDOS Shaving Gear

Helix, profile, pitch, runout and modifications of shaving gears are evaluated. The evaluation of shaving gears is similar to cylindrical gears.


Measurement of spur and helical broaches, with ring type spaces as well as helical chip spaces, on a high precision Coordinate Measuring Machine. Also with negative face angle. Evaluation of runout, transverse pitch, stepping of profile, face angle, back off angle, tooth profile, dimension over balls etc.
