In order to improve the accuracy of skived gears by means of reducing vibrations that are often observed during the cutting process, a simple model for calculating the cutting forces of skiving process is presented and also its effectiveness was discussed. The model is characterized by simple geometrical calculations, and the cutting forces were assumed as sum of vectors that represent the penetration of cutting edges. In the model, multiple cutting edges that are simultaneously meshing with the workpiece were considered. Distinguished oscillating frequencies of the calculated cutting forces and the natural frequencies of the clamped workpiece and of the cutter were carefully analyzed in order to predict the cutter rotation speed that was most likely to reduce undesired vibrations. Processing experiments conducted at several cutter rotation speeds showed that the predicted cutter rotation speed which could significantly reduce undesired vibrations was very effective and enabled the quality of a skived gear to be improved. Consequently, the proposed calculation model was enough effective and useful for operation conditions such as cutter rotation speed being determined.
