The second article part is devoted to the calculation of machine settings for Hypoid gear-drive pinions being generated by “Formate” and “Helixform” cutting methods. The solution is based on a local synthesis method by following assumptions: (1) the member-gear surfaceΣ2 is given (the surface Σ2 becomes known after the determination of its machine settings, see article part 1): (2) the being obtained machine settings for the pinion must guarantee: (a) that the member-gear surface Σ2 will be in contact with the pinion surface Σ1 at a choosen point M, (b) that at M and in the vicinity of M prescribed conditions of meshing will be provided.
