Nevertheless, it does not give consistent results under torque load and when the lead angle
Given my 50 years of experience in the oil seal industry, it is very exciting to see that Bruker has come up with an innovative, non-contact measurement for shaft lead angle
. The NPFLEX-LA will allow the sealing industry to continue to drive roadmap development beyond existing designs and achieve warranty targets at a reduced cost."
Taking into account the effect of lead angle
into consideration only for the nodes on pressure flank, three dimensional analysis involved can be executed using two dimensional mesh pattern, with each node having three degrees of freedom.
The combination included an uncoated tungsten carbide insert with a chip breaker and holder providing a zero-degree lead angle
. This tooling was used to develop the machinability values for the gray cast iron, and when cutting, the tool was flooded with a water-soluble cutting fluid.
It shows the calculated fraction of the maximum flow rate over the rotor wing per unit length, as a function of rotor wing helix angle for a fixed rotor speed, wing length, lead angle
and land width.
Equipped with a Gen II or III tube (depending on export destination), a laser rangefinder and a north sensor, the system is aimed at the target, the latter being kept within the reticule for about two seconds; at this point range is determined and so is the slew rate allowing the Vosel to automatically offer an new aiming point within the sight that provides both the required elevation and lead angle
. A simulator demonstrated that if the target was properly aimed, a bull's eye couldn't be missed -- although failure could be accounted on strong lateral wind or a sudden change of pace of the target after launch.
With a round in sert, there is really no "true" lead angle
as it changes based upon the varying depth of cut.
Usually, the hob diameter does not correspond to the diameter of the worm which will mate with the wormwheel being machined (the module and the pitch must agree), so the lead angle
of hob coils on the pitch diameter will be different from the lead angle
of worm coils.
