The Solid Modeling and Simulation for Non-Circular Gear Based on Pro/E
Based on the design theory of non-circular gears, using Pro/E drawing module, a system of elliptical gears parametric module and simulation was developed. Machining non-circular gear by wire cutting can be achieved by using Pro / E manufacturing module, and then gear machining tool path is created, tool and process parameters is set and simulation of process tool and process of post-processing analysis was described. Through the above process ultimately to generate post-processing procedures which NC machine tool need and achieve the automatic programming of non-circular gear. Form the application example, it has been observed that the gear created by Pro/E simulated NC programs can correct mesh according to the theory transmission ratio and the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
