Gear skiving offers great opportunities
for production with step-changing
productivity, particularly for internal gears,
whilst offering high-quality finishing
capabilities and being applicable on a
5-axis machine tool with its inherent
flexibility and multifunctionality.
The research presented in this paper extends the work done on CAD-based simulation approaches with an investigation of the surface topography of gears produced through gear skiving and the investigation of the cutting tool characteristics on the geometry of the produced gear. The study is complemented with the investigation of the cutting forces required in the machining process.
