High Contact Ratio Gearing: A Technology Ready for Implementation?
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
Today's competitive industrial gear marketplace demands products with excellent reliability, high capacity, and low noise. Surface hardened ground tooth gearing predominates but the legacy tooth forms handicap further improvements in capacity and noise generation. Vehicle and aircraft equipment use tooth forms not found in the standard tables to achieve better performance at little or no increase in cost. This paper will propose adopting these high contact ratio forms to industrial use.
