Founded in 1889 in Leipzig as “Maschinenfabrik Invention”, the present name “Pittler T & S GmbH” stands for 130 years of competency and know-how in state-of-the-art machine tools for turning and gear cutting processes. PITTLER T&S develops and manufactures high-precision turning and gear cutting centres for soft and hard machining of rotation-symmetrical components up to 5,000 mm in diameter.

In the spirit of the company founder, power skiving technology inparticular has been developed into a highly efficient gearing technology and is established not only within the context of complete machining but also as an individual technology in the PITTLER machine portfolio.


                                        PITTLER power Skiving Machines – Efficient gear cutting technology made in 1910

 Power Skiving is a machining method used for the manufacture of gear teeth, based on the patent by Wilhelm vonPittler from the year 1910. Over the past few years, the latest developments in manufacturing engineering have led tothe technology becoming an efficient and flexible alternative for gear components.

Typical for Power Skiving is the diagonal arrangement of the tool axis to the component axis, known as the shaft angle.This adjustment of the tool, a defined axial feed and the coupled speed of tool and component result in a relative movementwhich effectively “peels” the tooth space from the component along the main cutting direction.

                                                                             PITTLER Vertical pickup turning centers (VTL)

In the diameter range from 50 upto 630 mm, maximum precision in spite of high speed. The module system for reducing unit costs. The benefit for users goes beyond significantly reducing investment costs to include the declared intention of this development: Permanent reduction of unit production costs. PITTLER T&S GmbH, the traditional manufacturer of CNC lathes, has integrated operations such as drilling, thread cutting, counter-sinking, milling, grinding as well as final expanding and burnishing into the N1 platform in addition to turning. The offer is completed by our own integrated quality and process assurance modules as well as material flow components.

                                                                             PITTLER HDC – Heavy Duty Cutting machines

PV HDC Platform – Heavy machining made easy, system designed for precision work
The HDC Heavy Duty Cutting machine series is designed for a part diameter range of 2,000 to 5,000 mm for heavy duty machining (chip cross section up to 20 mm²) and for precision and hard precision machining. The machines are equipped with system-integrated tool carriers for compete processing. Tools are automatically changed directly between the tool carriers mounted on the cross slide and the tool magazine without using adapters or processing units. The carriage guides consist of large dimensioned, clearance-free roller guides, guaranteeing maximum positioning accuracy as well as high rapid traverse speeds. Our HDCs do not require expensive foundations.
