Tooth Proportions for Plastic Gears
|Publication Date:||7 August 1997|
Presents a new basic rack, AGMA PT, which, with its full round fillet, may be preferred in many applications of gears made from plastic materials. It contains a description, with equations and sample calculations, of how the proportions of a spur or helical gear may be derived from the design tooth thickness and the basic rack data. In several annexes, there are discussions of possible variations from the basic rack and also a procedure for defining tooth proportions without using the basic rack concept.
