Design Principle’s Research of Traction Gear’s Modification Slotting Cutter of High-Speed Locomotive
According to the traditional tooth profile, modification process cannot meet the traction gear’s technical requirements of the high-speed locomotive. A new way for the tooth profile modification technology was provided in the paper. The slotting profile modification process was proposed, the formulating methods of the tooth profile modification K diagram was introduced, modification curve fit as the sections of involutes, the modification profile angles of slotting cutter corresponding sections of involutes was deduced using the profile angle error analysis theory and the tooth profile of modification slotting cutter precision was designed. The feasibility and advantages of modification slotting cutter were validated by examples, which indicates the widely use of this technology in high-speed locomotive traction gear.
