Investigation on the wear of spur gears generated by modified cutter
gear wear, cutter modification, gear modification
Tooth surface wear damage is one of the main causes of gearing system failure. Excessive wear leads to tooth profile loss and an increase in transmission errors, as the worn gear surfaces are no longer conjugate. Thus, the enhancement of gear durability against wear is important for gear application. Recent works show that cutter modification can aid in reducing the tool wear in gear processing, while the wear performance of the gears produced by modified cutters is still unknown. Therefore, this study focuses on the wear performance of the gear generated by modified cutter. Numerical results show that the wear resistance can be enhanced through proper cutter modification.
