A Proposed Pre-Finish Cylindrical Gear Quality Standard
The article "A Proposed Pre-Finish Cylindrical Gear Quality Standard" appeared in the September/October 2016 issue of Gear Technology.
This proposed standard would not make any recommendations regarding the required quality for any application. The intent is to establish standard pre-finish quality classes for typical finishing operations, which only include the inspection elements that are important to properly evaluate pre-finish gear quality as it applies to the finishing operation. It would be the responsibility of the manufacturing/process engineer, quality engineer, or other responsible individual to establish the required pre-finish quality class for their application.
