gear rack for Machine Tool Industry

After completion of one or two teeth, the blank and cutter stop feeding and the cutter is withdrawn and indexed back to its starting position, thus enabling a short rack cutter of a practical length to be utilized. Cutter is again fed back to depth and cycle is repeated. Quantity of teeth is managed by the machine gearing, and pitch and pressure angle by the rack cutter. This technique can be used for generation of exterior spur gears, being preferably suited for cutting large, dual helical gears. For making helical the teeth, the cutter slides tend at the gear tooth helix angle.
The hob is fed into the gear blank to the correct depth and both are rotated together as if in mesh. One’s teeth of the hob cut in to the work piece in successive purchase and each in a somewhat different placement. Each hob tooth cuts its profile based on the form of cutter , but the accumulation of these straight cuts generates a curved form of the gear teeth, thus the name generating process. One rotation of the task completes the slicing upto specific depth upto which hob is definitely fed unless the gear has a wide face.

This methodis specifically adopted to cutting large teeth which are hard to cut by formed cutter, and to cut bevel-gear teeth. It is not widely used at the moment.
In gear planing process, the cutter contains true involute rack which reciprocates across the face of the blank and the blank rotates in the correct relationship to the gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china longitudinal motion of the cutter as if both roll jointly as a rack and pinion. Initially the cutter can be fed into complete tooth depth with cutter reciprocating and blank stationary. Involute form is produced as the blank rotates and involute rack cutter feeds longitudinally.

In the other method, both roughening and completing cuts are taken with single pointed tools. The use of the formed device for finishing can be impracticable for the bigger pitches which are finished by a single pointed tool. The amount of cuts required is dependent upon the size of the tooth, quantity of stock to be removed, and the kind of material.
