Hobbing milling is machining process for gear cutting, cutting splines, and cutting sprockets on a hobbing machine, which is a special type of milling machine. The teeth or splines are progressively cut into the work piece by a series of cuts made by a cutting tool called a hob. Compared to other gear forming processes it is relatively inexpensive but still quite accurate, thus it is used for a broad range of parts and quantities. It is the most widely used gear cutting process for creating spur and helical gears and more gears are cut by hobbing than any other process since it is relatively quick and inexpensive.  A type of skiving that is analogous to the hobbing of external gears can be applied to the cutting of internal gears cutter. this project aim find out the hobbing milling cutter material behaviour and material structural analysis, total solid body deformation, external loads and impact loads, stress, strain, Mesh on the ansys software. The material are taken Kevlar/ epoxy, aluminium silicon carbide. Design the hobbing milling cutter with the help of catia software.
