Research on the Variable Leads Transmission Mechanism Meshing Surfaces
In this paper, the surface shapes of roller followers and spiral groove are researched. General surface equations of different types of roller follower are studied. According to the ordinary equation of spiral groove, the region shape between roller follower and spiral groove is discussed with the Hertz contact theory. By researching on the common mesh type, we can conclude that the gap shape function is elliptic equation.
