The Design and Manufacture of Machined Plastic Gears
The article "The Design and Manufacture of Machined Plastic Gears" appeared in the May/June 1985 issue of Gear Technology.
The use of plastic gearing is increasing steadily in new products. This is due in part to the availability of recent design data. Fatigue stress of plastic gears as a function of diametral pitch, pressure angle, pitch line velocity, lubrication and life cycles are described based on test information. Design procedures for plastic gears are presented.
