Basic Principle and Mathematical Model of Cutting Hypoid Gears by Generating Line Method
Generating line method, which is based on the generating process of spherical involute curve, is a new processing theory of cutting ideal spherical involute gears. This paper proposed the geometry and basic principle of cutting hypoid gears by this method, and defined the planar conjugated relationship between generating lines of the pinion and gear. A mathematical model of tooth surfaces is established based on cutting process. This model can be applied to any shapes and parameters of the gear generating line.
