Hobbing machines, also known as hobbers, are specialised machines used for the production of gears. Using the machine's various settings, the number of teeth, desired helix angle and profile correction can be set up. The hobber is made out of single or multiple-gear worms to build a worm gear unit with the workpiece. The rotary cutting motion occurs due to the turning of the milling tool. Additionally, the milling tool drives alongside the workpiece to generate the tooth space. The milling axis and turning of the workpiece can produce spur, as well as helical, gears.

The versatility of a hobbing machine allows for the production of desired gears and splines with the highest levels of precision. As the process of removing metal can wear out the milling tool, this tool is continually shifted. This is how new teeth are produced. When the work tool is completely worn out, it is newly sharpened using a specialised milling machine.
