An Innovative Way of Designing Gear Hobbing Processes
May 1, 2012
In today’s manufacturing environment, shorter and more efficient product
development has become the norm. It is therefore important to consider every
detail of the development process, with a particular emphasis on design. For
green machining of gears, the most productive and important process is hobbing. In order to analyze process design for this paper, a manufacturing simulation was developed capable of calculating chip geometries and process forces based on different models. As an important tool for manufacturing technology engineers, an economic feasibility analysis is implemented as well. The aim of this paper is to show how an efficient process design—as well as an efficient process—can be designed.
