Surface Characteristics of Hobbed Gears - July 2017

The article "Surface Characteristics of Hobbed Gears" appeared in the July 2017 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Gear hobbing is one of the most productive manufacturing processes for cylindrical gears. The quality of the gears is a result of the tool quality, the precision of the workpiece, tool clamping and kinematics of the machine. The dry gear hobbing process allows machining of gears with a quality according to the DIN standard up to IT 5. To evaluate which gear quality is possible to machine with a given clamping and hob, it is useful to simulate the process in advance.
