Simulation of Hobbing for Analysis of Cutting Edge Failure due to Chip Crush
September 1, 2004
There are great advantages in dry hobbing, not only for friendliness
toward the environment, but also for increasing productivity and for decreasing manufacturing cost. Dry hobbing, however, often causes failures in hob cutting edges or problems with the surface quality of gear tooth flanks. These difficulties are not present when hobbing with cutting oil. Pinching and crushing of generated chips between the hob cutting edge and the work gear tooth flank is considered a major cause of those problems.
