The Klingelnberg HYPOFLEX® method for straight bevel gears

The HYPOFLEX® method is a well-established method for series production of straight bevel gears on all Klingelnberg cutting machines. The continuous indexing method integrates seamlessly into the existing Closed Loop bevel gear production. High-quality, eco-friendly dry processing takes place with a highly productive tool system consisting of a single-part cutter head in the HYCON or ARCON® series and fully coated (3FS) carbide stick blades.


  • Particularly suited for efficient series production of straight bevel gears
  • Ideal for dry-cutting in finishing quality with carbide stick blades (3-face grinding)
  • Usable for gearing processes with separate flank machining with one tool (semi-completing) in the continuous indexing method
  • Design and inspection of lengthwise and profile crowning
  • Simple gearing calculation and optimization via KIMoS (Klingelnberg Integrated Manufacturing of Spiral Bevel Gears)
  • Assurance of production quality with the Closed Loop concept
