Repair of Large, Surface-Degraded Industrial Gears - a New Approach - January/February 2017

The article "Repair of Large, Surface-Degraded Industrial Gears - a New Approach" appeared in the January/February 2017 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
This paper presents a new approach to repair industrial gears by showing a case study where pressure angle modification is also considered, differently from the past repairing procedures that dealt only with the modification of the profile shift coefficient. A computer program has been developed to automatically determine the repair alternatives under two goals: minimize the stock removal or maximize gear tooth strength.
