Technological studies on gear shaving

The technological studies on gear shaving will be used mainly to gain better understanding of certain loads on a shaving cutter. So far, it is not known what causes wear on shaving cutters and what effects this has on the quality of the shaved gear.

With the results from the technological investigations on gear shaving, the effects on the tool life of different parameters like cutting speed, feed rate, chip thickness, tool material, work piece material and others will be known. It will also be possible to optimise gear-shaving processes in terms of tool life and to know the quality of the gear.
