Gear cutting is any machining process for cutting a gear. The most common gear-cutting processes include hobbing, broaching, milling, and grinding. In the gear cutting process the cutter is formed according to the shape of the tooth. In the milling process a milling machine and a form cutter are used, which is passed through the gear blank to form the tooth gap. One main advantage of gear milling is that it can produce almost any type of gear.
