Theoretic and Experimental Study on the Accuracy of Gears by Generative Electrochemical Mechanical Finishing
Gears’ accuracy has important influences on its working performance and life. Electrochemical mechanical finishing (ECMF) was applied to finish cylindrical gears. The influence of the generative type of ECMF was studied theoretically and experimentally on the shape of gear teeth, and on the dimensional accuracy between teeth, and that in the tooth thickness direction. The results indicate that the generative type of ECMF can improve the accuracy between teeth, as well, the dimensional accuracy of gear tooth and that in the thickness direction may be also improved.
