Measurement of Directly Designed Gears with Symmetric and Asymmetric Teeth
January 1, 2011
In comparison with the traditional gear design approach based on preselected, typically standard generating rack
parameters, the Direct Gear Design method provides certain advantages for custom high-performance gear drives that
include: increased load capacity, efficiency and lifetime; reduced size, weight, noise, vibrations, cost, etc. However, manufacturing such directly designed gears requires not only custom tooling, but also customization of the gear measurement methodology. This paper presents definitions of main inspection dimensions and parameters for directly designed spur and helical,
external and internal gears with symmetric and asymmetric teeth.
