Research on Solving Method for Tooth Crest Curve of Spiral Bevel Gear under Form Milling
Combining the machining process simulation on UG NX software and the mathematically analysis, a new solving method for the tooth crest curve equation of spiral bevel gears is proposed in this paper. The steps are as follows:1) Establishing the gear blank cone equation in the original coordinate system; 2) Finding the gear convex and concave profile equations in the new coordinate system; 3) Integrating the original coordinate system and the new one through geometric transformation and then deducing the tooth crest curve equations on both sides. The equations will help calculate the cutter’s position and pose in addendum chamfering process, with the chamfer automation achieved.
