The Design and Manufacture of Plastic Gears Part II - July/August 1985
The article "The Design and Manufacture of Plastic Gears Part II" appeared in the July/August 1985 issue of Gear Technology.
Advancements in machining and assembly techniques of thermoplastic gearing along with new design data has lead to increased useage of polymeric materials. information on state of the art methods in fabrication of plastic gearing is presented and the importance of a proper backlash allowance at installation is discussed. Under controlled conditions, cast nylon gears show 8-14 dBA. lower noise level than three other gear materials tested.
