Manufacturing Method of Long-Cone-Distance Spiral Bevel Gears Based on CNC Machining Center
A method is presented for producing long-cone-distance spiral bevel gears using CNC machining center. Due to long-cone-distance, these spiral bevel gears are very difficult to produce, because machine-tool settings exceed the outermost limits of the available dedicated machines. The method removes the limits of the dedicated machine tool. This paper consists of (a) geometric modeling of the long-cone-distance spiral bevel gears, (b) process planning for NC machining based on CAM software. Experimental cuts were made to ascertain the validity and effectiveness of the presented method with a CNC machining center.
