To verify the technical advancement and practicability in engineering digitized true tooth surface of spiral bevel gear based on machining adjustment parameters, this study, gets the NC codes via NC process simulation software from 3D model with machining adjustment parameters and then inputs the codes to five-axis NC machine tools to conduct gear cutting experiments.
From the review of the past work it is evident that as of now no research has been reported on development of ECH for finishing the straight bevel gears. The present work bridges this gap through development of the ECH process for improving surface finish and surface integrity of the straight bevel gears and experimental investigations on the process performance.
