An Auto—Design System of Gleason Spiral Bevel Gear
Owing to the spiral bevel gear has a complex geometrical shape, a great number of parameters and a complicated calculation process, a computer-aided design system of the Gleason spiral bevel gear has been developed based on VBA, so as to rapidly make geometry calculation, strength calculation, 2D and 3D parameterization drawing, machining parameters calculation, and so on. Thus it can greatly improve the speed and accuracy of design. In this paper, the overall structure and main functions of the system have been discussed. By taking two meshing gears used on MU trains as a design example, some computing process and results are given out.
