Abstract:

A new method for generation of spiral bevel gears is proposed. The main features of this method are as follows i the gear tooth surfaces are conjugated and can transform rotation with zero transmission errors ii the tooth bearing contact is localized iii the center of the instantaneous contact ellipse moves in a plane that has a fixed orientation iv the contact normal performs in the process of meshing a parallel motion v the motion of the contact ellipse provides improved conditions of lubrication and vi the gears can be manufactured by use of Gleasons equipment.
