Finger Milling-Cutter NC Generating Spiral Bevel Gear Tooth Surfaces & its Machining Simulation
Based on the in-depth study the principle of NC generating gear tooth surfaces by application of the disc milling-cutter, finger milling-cutter NC generating spiral bevel gear tooth surfaces is presented in this paper. Through using a 5 shaft 4 linkage machining center, the finger milling-cutter is mounted on the imagination disc milling-cutter, in fact, 2 NC axes are used simultaneously to control the finger milling-cutter motion, imitating a blade motion of disc milling-cutter, and the motion of the blank is not change, to generate the spiral bevel gear tooth surfaces. A spiral bevel pinion is simulation machined by using machining simulation system VERICUT and the feasibility of the machining method is verified.
