The Uses and Limitations of Transmission Error
The article "The Uses and Limitations of Transmission Error" appeared in the July/August 1988 issue of Gear Technology.
The concept of "transmission error" is relatively new and stems from research work in the late 1950s by Gregory, Harris and Munro,(1) together with the need to check the accuracy of gear cutting machines. The corresponding commercial "single flank" testing equipment became available in the 1960s, but it was not until about ten years ago that it became generally used, and only recently has it been possible to test reliably at full load and full speed.
