Gear Cutting is a technology in the field of CNC machining used for producing gears. CNC machining utilizes CNC programs to automatically control the machining process of machine tools, improving production efficiency and accuracy. In Gear Cutting, cutting tools are used to cut gears on the workpiece. These cutting tools are typically made of hard alloys or high-speed steel and can be precisely shaped according to requirements.
Gear Cutting includes various methods such as gear milling, gear hobbing, and gear grinding. In gear milling, milling tools are used to cut the gear shape. In gear hobbing, the cutting tool rotates on the workpiece while in contact with a pressure roller at a larger diameter to form the gear. Gear grinding uses grinding stones to manufacture gears.
Gear Cutting can be used to produce various types of gears including spur gears, helical gears, worm gears, and bevel gears, among others. It is widely used in industries such as automotive, mechanical, aerospace, and industrial sectors, as gears are indispensable components of many mechanical equipment, and their precision and quality are critical for mechanical performance.
