Gear Noise As a Result of Nicks, Burrs and Scale - What Can Be Done
The article "Gear Noise As a Result of Nicks, Burrs and Scale - What Can Be Done" appeared in the July/August 1996 issue of Gear Technology.
There are many different causes of gear noise, all of them theoretically preventable. Unfortunately, the prevention methods can be costly, both in equipment and manpower. If the design of the gear and its application are appropriate, in theory all that is necessary is to have a tight control on the process of producing the finished gear. In reality, there are many variables that can cause a process, no matter how well-controlled, to deteriorate, and thus cause errors, some of which will cause a gear to produce unwanted noise when put to use.
