In heavy industry (metallurgy, mining), large-size worm gears designed to carry large loads are often used. However, their technology is very difficult and their manufacturing costs are very high. In practice, cone-derivative worm gears are most often used, which are machined by the envelope method using a rotary tool. The literature has given much coverage to the determination of the worm helical surface. The surface of wormwheel teeth is much less commonly described. Therefore, this paper presents an analytical and a numerical methods for generating the wormwheel toothing by the tangential and radial methods with a special cutter and with a modular hob.
Key words: envelope method / worm gear / worm wheel
