VARDEX Gear Milling

Advanced Technologies for Gear, Spline and Rack Manufacturing

VARDEX presents an original and innovative solution for the gear milling industry, offering a competitive alternative to the traditional Hob system. Gear manufacturers can now mill external splines, external cylindrical gears, sprockets and racks as well as many additional gear applications with VARDEX gear milling tools.


Standard (Generic) Gear Milling Holders (End Mill, Shell Mill, Disc Mill) are now suitable for all standard inserts (DIN 3972, DIN 5480, ANSI B92.1) and tailor-made inserts.
The standard toolholder enables the use of the same toolholder for the same IC type inserts. No need for special toolholders for each individual profile!
