Whatâ€™s New and Whatâ€™s Next at Motion + Power Technology Expo?
At the recently held Motion+Power Technology Expo, we had the opportunity to sit down with a number of exhibitors to learn more about the latest in technology for the mechanical power transmission industry â€“ including gear manufacturing machine tools, workholding, inspection equipment and much more.

This article discusses an application driven approach to the computer-aided sizing of spur gear teeth. The methodology is bases on the index of tooth loading and environment of application of the gear. It employs handbook knowledge and empirical information to facilitate the design process for a novice. Results show that the approach is in agreement with the textbook data. However, this technique requires less expert knowledge to arrive at the conclusion. The methodology has been successfully implemented as a gear tooth sizing module of a parallel axis gear drive expert system.
If you think of Gear Expo as only a machine tool show, you're not seeing all of its potential. You may be tempted to skip it this year, especially if you're struggling to fill your current capacity. I've heard too many stories of canceled orders, falling profits and slashed budgets to believe that great numbers of you will be attending Gear Expo with buying new machines as your No. 1 priority.

Please find attached the PDFâ€™s for the bull gear and the pinion gear. They are old drawings! The wear is on the wheel.
