Abstract

Two imaginary skew rack cutter curves with stepped triple circular-arc teeth are presented in this paper. A helical gear pair that includes the gear and pinion surfaces was generated by using two matched imaginary skew rack cutter surfaces. The mathematical models of the helical gear pair with stepped triple circular-arc teeth were developed based on theory of gearing. With the use of these models, the analysis of kinematic errors can be illustrated and evaluated by computer programming and tooth contact analysis (TCA). The assembly errors used had several kinds: ideal assembly errors, vertical misalignment angles, horizontal misalignment angles, manufacturing errors of helical angles, and center distance deviation. TCA revealed that the sensitivity of horizontal misalignment angles was lower than that of manufacturing errors of helix angles but higher than that of vertical misalignment angles.
