Abstract:

A new approach for design, generation, and computerized simulation of meshing and contact of face-milled, formate cut spiral bevel gears is presented. The purpose is to develop a low noise, stabilized bearing contact for this type of gear drives. The approach proposed is based on application of three procedures that permit in sequence, to provide a longitudinally directed bearing contact, a predesigned parabolic function of transmission errors and limit the shift of bearing contact caused by errors of alignment. The theory developed is illustrated with an example of design and computation.
