Bevel Gear Model
|Publication Date:||1 October 2007|
The paper presents a method for developing an accurate generic bevel gear model including both the face milling and face hobbing processes. Starting with gear blank geometry, gear and pinion basic generator machine settings are calculated. The contact pattern and rolling quality are specified and held to the second order in terms of pattern length, contact bias and motion error. Based on the setup, a grid of tooth points are found including the tooth flank, fillet and, if it exists, the undercut area. It is proposed as themodel for the next generation of bevel gear strength calculations in that the procedure produces true bevel gear geometry, uses blank design parameters as input and is vendor independent except for cutter diameter.
