Machining of Spur Gears Using a Special Milling Cutter

2018 Tehnički Vjesnik  
Spur gears have a wide application in the machine-building industry. Machining process primarily selected for these gears is hobbing method with modular hobs, or with Fellows cutters. Other methods which can be applied are profiling using the pull broaches, while the finishing can be done by gear shaving or grinding by the Maag, Niles or Reishauer methods. Moreover, in small (or unit) production, they may be formed using disc-or finger-type modular cutters. The article presents a method for
