Definition

Gear grinding is a hard finishing method for gears, using tools with a specific geometrical profile. It is divided into two main groups: generating grinding and profile grinding, relating to the manufacturing of the tooth flank. Furthermore, these groups can be subdivided into continuous and discontinuous processes (DIN 8589).

Extended Definition

Classification of Hard-Fine Machining Processes and Their Position in the Process Chain

At the beginning of the process chain of gear manufacturing, there are either forming processes like forging in dies or cutting processes with geometric well-defined cutting edges like drilling, turning, and milling, which in this specific case is called hobbing, Fig.  1.
