This paper derives the generalized surface equation for cylindrical, conical, and hyperbolic meshing turret-rollers. Based on the generalized equation of meshing turret-rollers, generalized mathematical expressions of surface geometry for globoidal cams with cylindrical, conical, and hyperbolic meshing turret-rollers are derived using theory of conjugate surfaces, differential geometry, and coordinate transformation. A design example is presented for demonstrating procedures of surface generating of the globoidal cam. The result of this work is necessary for the computer-aided design and manufacturing of roller gear cams for industrial applications.
