  • Publication number: 20170252843
    Abstract: An axial hob (14) with cutting teeth (16) which are arranged around a cylinder (19) in a helical pattern. The cutting front (18) is perpendicular to the helix. The re-grindable blade thickness is oriented in the direction of the helix lead direction. While the tool rotates, the active cutting front changes from one blade to the next which, depending on the hand of rotation, is an advanced or retracted position. However, the rotation will not give the individual blades a chip removing motion but only position the following blade in an advanced or retracted location, such as in a gear slot to be machined.

  • Publication number: 20140267589
    Abstract: An omnidirectional image storage unit stores frames of panoramic image shot while moving on the route, a route information storage unit stores route information indicating nodes and branches on the route, and a correspondence information storage unit stores correspondence between each frame and each point on the route. A data updating unit successively updates a current position and a sight direction based on a user's input. An image cutout unit reads out a panoramic image corresponding to a current position and cuts out a field of view image that constructs a field of vision in a sight direction. A route mapping unit creates a route map indicating a current position and a sight direction superimposed upon a plan view of the route. An image display unit displays the field of view image and the route map side by side.
