Helios Gear Products will debut two state-of-the-art gear manufacturing solutions at IMTS.

After a soft launch of the Hera series gear hobbing machines during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the company is officially introducing Hera 90 and Hera 350 to the North American market. The Hera CNC gear hobbing machines support micro- to coarse-pitch gear manufacturing applications with innovative technical features such as complete FANUC CNC and direct-drive torque motors, X-axis linear scales, easy-to-use (and train) dialog programming and versatile unified automation systems. "With globally competitive pricing, domestic support from the Helios team and a unique combination of technical capabilities in a small footprint, the Hera machines offer both job shops and end-product gear manufacturers world-class hobbing solutions," said a Helios spokesperson.

"Manufacturers have found the Helios Hera CNC hobbing machines to be extremely cost-effective, high-quality platforms for 21st century gear production," said David Harroun, Vice-President of Helios Gear Products. "With several transformative installations across the United States, the Helios team is excited to demonstrate the capabilities of the Hera gear hobbing machines to the North American public for the first time at IMTS."

Jeff Kamps, Helios customer and President at Wisconsin Gear & Machine, said, "We have cut our cycle times down from four hours to a half-hour. It has really been beneficial for Wisconsin Gear. With the shortage of people, it has really made a big difference; we can still get a large volume of work done in a timely manner."
