This Seminar will cover basic involute gear theory; terms and definitions for spur and helical gears. Additionally; practical work on the measurement of gears including calculations on e.g. distance over rollers measurement will be addressed. Lastly; basic principles of gear hobbing and shaping as well as a selection of index and feed change gears will be covered. The practical work involves setting up and producing spur and helical gears by hobbing and shaping using a Maxicut 2A shaping machine and Sykes H150 hobbing machine.
