Computer Aided Design for Gear Shaper Cutters
The article "Computer Aided Design for Gear Shaper Cutters" appeared in the November/December 1987 issue of Gear Technology.
Computer programs have been developed to completely design spur and helical gear shaper cutters starting from the specifications of the gear to be cut and the type of gear shaper to be used. The programs generate the working drawing of the cutter and, through the use of a precision plotter, generate enlarge scaled layouts of the gear as produced by the cutter and any other layouts needed for its manufacture.
