Demonstrating the construction and optimization of the tooth root fillet while leaving required grinding stock on the involute tooth flanks.
Comparing the influence of geometric variations in physical hob size on tool life; specifically, the overall length of the hob.
Dealing with geometrically-accurate gears with parallel-axes gear sets, intersected-axes gear sets, and with crossed-axes gear sets.
By using KAPP NILES gear grinding machines, Volkswagen is making strides in its gearbox production.
Hybrid steels show many interesting properties relevant to gear applications, somewhat depending on the area of application and the working conditions.
Romax Technology provides class-leading simulation solutions for the design, analysis, testing, and manufacture of electro-mechanical drivetrain systems.
Micro-skiving has been developed that allows users access to the skiving technique for machining inner micro-teeth.
With the development of new cutting tool technology, chamfering with hobs has found new life; chamfer hobbing is now the process of choice for chamfering and deburring automotive-size gears in medium and high volumes.
Starting out almost a century ago by making clock parts, Neugart now develops, produces, and sells planetary gearboxes and custom gearboxes all around the world to a variety of industries.
While searching for a material that meets all of the general and branch-specific lubrication requirements, water is a visionary, yet obvious, raw material available worldwide that’s non-toxic and non-combustible.
Flat broach manufacturing is a tooling option that offers some advantages to circular broaching, but the tools need to maintain optimum sharpness in order to be effective.
The L.S. Starrett Co. has been designing, manufacturing, and supplying high-quality, precision measuring tools, metrology systems, and more for 140 years.
This paper is intended to give a review on the statistical reliability behavior of cylindrical gears with regard to pitting and tooth root breakage failures.
In this article, a favorable configuration of bevel gears in crossed-axes gearing is discussed in which it is stressed that the mounting distance is one of the most important design parameters in crossed-axes gearing.
By offering 5-axis grinding machines and customizable application software that can perform multiple operations, Haas Schleifmaschinen GmbH is making quite a name for itself in several industries, including gear manufacturing.
In this report, a test gear geometry for investigating contact fatigue strength (pitting) of high-performance clean steels is determined, and based on two well-established test gear geometries for contact fatigue test, a detailed comparison with regard to their potential of maximum contact pressure is performed.
