In production facilities and manufacturing machines, torque transmission is required to transfer mechanical work. A common solution for torque transmission is the coupling of internal and external gears. For the manufacturing of internal gears machining technologies are common. Limits are the machining of high strength materials as well as the manufacturing of internal gears with specific depth and without breaking through the workpiece.
In this study pulsed electrochemical machining (PECM) of internal gears with a depth of 20 mm without breaking through the workpiece is shown. The influence of different process parameters on the resulting internal gear geometries was analysed. The resulting internal gear geometries were compared with a standardised geometry. It will be shown that the resulting gear geometries depend on the material-specific removal characteristics of the workpiece material and that internal gears with a depth of 20 mm could be manufactured with high accuracy by help of PECM.
