Sample text

This arc is equal in length to the length of the arc EF, also on the pitch circle. Circular pitch may be determined by dividing the circumference of the pitch circle (␲D) by the number of teeth as follows: Circular pitch ϭ circumference of pitch circle number of teeth CIRCULAR PITCH (ABC) TOOTH AXIS E AD DE ND UM B A F C D H CI R E CL CL EA RA NC C E CL IR PIT C E CI L RC Figure 3-8 DEDENDUM CIRCLE E CHORDAL PITCH Note the circular pitch and chordal pitch. 1416 Chordal pitch is the distance from the center of one tooth to the center of another tooth when measured on the chord of an arc of the pitch circle (Figure 3-8).

Thus, ten times the product of the driven gears divided by the product of the driver gears is equal to the pitch of the helix. Milling a Spiral When tapered reamers, bevel gears, and so on, are to be held between centers and milled, that is, the cuts are to be taken at an angle to the axis of the work, the axis of the index head and the tailstock center should coincide with the axis of the work. If they do not coincide, errors in indexing and problems in machining are introduced. A typical setup for milling tapered work is shown in Figure 2-8.

Since the holes are properly spaced in the disc (index plate), the work attached to the disc can be rotated into any desired angular position. Radial drilling Jigs and Fixtures 13 A POSITION 1 B PROJECTING PLATE POSITION 2 PIN DISK SCREW CLAMP ANGLE IRON A simple type of indexing fixture that can be used to facilitate machining at accurately spaced angles. Figure 1-18 operations can be performed when a projecting plate is provided with a jig hole. The same general principles concerning clamping, support while machining, and chip clearance as covered in jigs apply as well to fixtures.
