Abstract

This paper studies the computerized tooth profile generation of involute spur gears cut with pinion-type shaper cutters. Based on the theory of gearing the mathematical models of pinion-type shaper cutters and generated gears with involute teeth are given. Trochoidal envelope traced by cutter during generating process is also investigated. Computer graphs of involute spur gears are presented based on the given model, and also generation simulation is illustrated. The effect of tool parameters on generated gears can be visualised during the design stage.
