Abstract

The application of a Gleason coniflex cutter (plane-cutter) on a modern Phoenix bevel gear machine tool in face gear manufacturing has a advantage: involving a universal cutter or grinder and an available existing machine, it is valuable to research this method for face gear generation. The principle of the application of the plane-cutter in face gear manufacturing is presented first. Then, the geometry of the cutter is defined, and the model of the face gear generated by this method in abstract is established. Third, a method that uses a pre-designed contact path for synthesis with the motion parameters of the plane-cutter is proposed; controllable transmission errors are taken into consideration in this process. Fourth, based on the equivalence principle of the position and direction, the computer numerical control (CNC) motion rules of all spindles of the machine are determined, and the surface generated by the machine is presented. Finally, numerical simulation of an example demonstrates that although the surface generated by the plane-cutter, to a certain extent, deviates from the theoretical surface generated by the traditional method, the surface, in meshing with the standard involute surface of the pinion, presents good geometry meshing performance based on tooth contact analysis (TCA), except for a shortened contact ellipse.
