Part I of this paper describes the theory behind double-flank composite inspection, detailing the apparatus used, the various measurements that can be achieved using it, the calculations involved and their interpretation. Part II, which will appear in the next issue, includes a discussion of the practical application of double-flank composite inspection, especially for large-volume operations. Part II covers statistical techniques that can be used in conjunction with double-flank composite inspection, as well as an in-depth analysis of gage R&R for this technique.
AGMA introduced ANSI/AGMA 2015–2–A06—
Accuracy Classification System: Radial System for Cylindrical Gears, in 2006 as the first major rewrite of the
double-flank accuracy standard in over 18 years. This document explains concerns related to the use of
ANSI/AGMA 2015–2–A06 as an accuracy classification system and recommends a revised system that can be of more service to the gearing industry.
