Calculation of non-deformed chip and gear geometry in power skiving using a CAD-based simulation

Power skiving is a new machining process that allows the manufacturing of external and internal gears while achieving high throughputs. Although the process was first described during the nineteenth century, it is not until lately that advances in machine tool technology allowed for the process to be implemented on an industrial scale. This paper presents a novel simulation model that enables the accurate prediction of the non-deformed chip geometry, the form and dimensions of the chips produced during the cutting process as well as the characteristics of the gear gap. The simulation model is embedded on a CAD environment in order to take advantage of their increased accuracy. Through the simulation code, the virtual simulation of the manufacturing process is realised. The simulation model was verified with the use of analytical equations regarding the form of the gear. Chip geometry and dimensions for internal and external gears machined with different conditions are also presented.
