Power-Dry-Cutting of Bevel Gears
|Publication Date:||1 October 1999|
High speed machining using carbides has been known for some decades for milling and turning operations. Improvements in carbide grades and sintering processes in combination with new coating methods and the use of CNC machines has lead to a significantly new trend in cutting bevel gears. This paper discusses bevel gear dry cutting methods with surface cutting speeds of 1000 ft./min. for continuous face hobbing and plunge cutting single index face milling.
