Abstract

Gear shaving is commonly used as a finishing process for gear manufacturing. The precision of the shaved gear tooth profile is highly dependent on both the parameter adjustments of the shaving machine and the cutter assembly errors. This paper develops the mathematical model of the shaved gear with crowning taking into account the setting parameters of the gear shaving machine and cutter assembly errors. The effects of the parameters on the work gear surface and the tooth lead crowning are also investigated. The results are thought to be relevant to the design, assembly, calibration, and control of a gear shaving machine.
