THE FINAL CHAPTER
This is the last in the series of chapters excerpted from Dr. Hermann J. Stadtfeld's Gleason Bevel Gear Technology - a book written for specialists in planning, engineering, gear design and manufacturing. The work also addresses the technical
information needs of researchers, scientists and students who deal with the theory and practice of bevel gears and other angular gear systems. While all of the above groups are of course of invaluable importance to the gear industry, it is surely the students who hold the key to its future. And with that knowledge it is reassuring to hear from Dr. Stadtfeld of
the enthusiastic response he has received from younger readers
of these chapter installments.
This presentation is an expansion of a previous study (Ref.1) by the authors
on lapping effects on surface finish and transmission errors. It documents
the effects of the superfinishing process on hypoid gears, surface finish and transmission errors.
