Geometric Modeling of Epicycloid Hypoid Gear Based on Processing Principle
Full Paper(PDF, 909KB)
According to the processing principles of gear cutting, tool structure, and the relevant position and movement between the machine and the work piece, this study established the optimal meshing coordinate for gear cutting by using the gear cutting meshing principle. Nonlinear equations were established by data discrimination of theoretical tooth surfaces; they were solved by MATLAB software, and three-dimensional coordinates of disperse points on the tooth surface are obtained. Three-dimensional coordinates were introduced into Pro/E software, and a three-dimensional geometry model of cycloid hypoid gear was built. Finally, dynamic simulation of the cycloid hypoid gear was performed, verifying the accuracy of the 3D model.
