Experimental and Numerical Study of a Loaded Cylindrical Glass Fiber-Reinforced PA6 Gear

The article "Experimental and Numerical Study of a Loaded Cylindrical Glass Fiber-Reinforced PA6 Gear" appeared in the July 2019 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Polymer gears find increasing applications in the automotive industry, office machines, food machinery, and home appliances. The main reason for this success is their low cost. Their low weight, quietness of operation, and meshing without lubricant are also interesting. However, they have poor heat resistance and are limited to rotational transmission. In order to improve the gears' behavior, glass fiber is added
