CNC Manufacturing of Circular Faced Cylindrical Gears

The article "CNC Manufacturing of Circular Faced Cylindrical Gears" appeared in the January/February 2020 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Spur cylindrical gears are usually cut using a hob and therefore present an essentially straight face to which crowning can be added to prevent edge contact. Rather than using a rack or hob, it is possible to cut cylindrical gears with a face mill cutter. In the following presentation, these gears are termed "spurved," i.e. — a contraction of "spur" and "curved."
