Simulation of Deviations in Hobbing and Generation Grinding - September/October 2014

The article "Simulation of Deviations in Hobbing and Generation Grinding" appeared in the September/October 2014 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
The hobbing and generation grinding production processes are complex due to tool geometry and kinematics. Expert knowledge and extensive testing are required for a clear attribution of cause to work piece deviations. A newly developed software tool now makes it possible to simulate the cutting procedure of the tool and superimpose systematic deviations on it. The performance of the simulation software is illustrated here with practical examples. The new simulation tool allows the user to accurately predict the effect of errors. With this knowledge, the user can design and operate optimal, robust gearing processes.
