Özet

Although there are a lot of methods for making gear, hobbing is the most common method. In this method, the evaluations of optimum cutting conditions, cost and machining time will be able to be done by interpreting the relations between cutting forces and cutting parameters. In this study, an experimental setup was designed and produced to measure cutting forces occurred during gear hobbing process. The components used in this design were: A KISTLER 9272A four component (Fx, Fy, Fz, Mz) dynamometer for force measurement, a data acquisition card (KISTLER PCIM DAS 1602/16), a multi-channel amplifier and Dynoware package for processing of data and making graphs. Experimental setup was made by taking into consideration circumstances at real cutting conditions and it was shown that cutting forces could be measured in hobbing tests.
