Efficient Hard Finishing of Asymmetric Tooth Profiles and Topological Modifications by Generating Grinding - August 2017

The article "Efficient Hard Finishing of Asymmetric Tooth Profiles and Topological Modifications by Generating Grinding" appeared in the August 2017 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
In order to improve load-carrying capacity and noise behavior, gears usually have profile and lead modifications. Furthermore, in gears where a specified tooth-flank load application direction (for drive and coast flanks) is a design enhancement, or even compulsory, the asymmetric tooth profile is a further solution. Nowadays, many gears need to be hard finished. Continuous generating grinding offers a very high process efficiency, but is this process able to grind all modifications, especially asymmetric gears? Yes, it is!
