Characterization of Global Form Deviations for Spiral Bevel Gear and Correction of Machine-Setting Parameters
In order to improve the machining accuracy of spiral bevel gear, difference surface was adopted to characterize its global form deviations quantifiably and correct its deviations. The quantitative mathematical relationship between the actual tooth surface deviations of spiral bevel gear and the corrected values of the machine-setting parameters had been referred, and the theoretical correction formula of the global form deviations had been gotten by the least square method. Finally, the pinion of spiral bevel gear in the automobile rear axle has been set for an example to account for the effectiveness of the deviation correction by use of the difference surface method.
