Probe-Radius Compensation Of The Bevel Gears Tooth Surface Using 3D Measured Points
First of all, using the coordinate measuring machines 3D measured points are acquired. These machines are widely used in gear manufacturing industry but each of them handles the compensation problem in different ways. Thus, the aim of this paper is to compensate the measured data points on the tooth surface of bevel gears with the value of probe radius. This paper presents an option to solve the compensation with the value of probe radius and shows the steps, the methodology to implement this idea in practical use. There are used triangular meshes on the measured data points and determined the normal vector of each point detected on the tooth surface of the bevel gears.
