hobbing process

Computer 3D modelling of chip geometry and force field in the hobbing process

Nowadays, the main method of machining the gears with a module in the range 1–25 mm, which are integral parts of modern machines, remains hobbing. Operations of the toothed crown processing determine the efficiency of the entire technological process of manufacturing gears. Thus, the time expenses and performance, the cost of the gears, and their final quality depend to a large extent on these indicators in operations of hobbing. Considering the importance of this process for mechanical engineering, considerable attention of scientists is devoted to its modelling.
