The method of generating the gear tooth with a rack tool is applied on MAAG machine tools. Their specific cutting scheme leads to an irregular energetic loading of the tool cutting edge, during the rolling process. In this paper, we present a new method for analyzing the energetic load along the cutting edges of the rack shaped cutter, based on graphical modelling of the cutting process performed in CATIA. The energetic load smoothing is proposed to be obtained by finding an appropriate variation law for the circular feed communicated to the workpiece by toothing machine kinematical chain, during the rolling motion that permanently respects the rolling condition established between the centrodes attached to both tool and workpiece. A numerical solution in a concrete case of analysis is also included.
