NC Machining Simulation of Spiral Bevel Gear Based on VERICUT
Based on the traditional cradle-type spiral bevel gear machining theory, the mathematical model of tilt machining method for the pinion member of spiral bevel gear pair is created. Then, by applying coordinate transformation method from crade-type machine to CNC one, a five-axis virtual CNC machine model is established by VERICUT software. at the same time, the pinion cutting simulation is carried out under VERICUT according the properties of the general five-axis CNC system and the relevant configuration parameters. By using this method, the accuracy of the bevel gear cutting system based on a general five-axis CNC can be well verified.
