Gear geometry is thought to be complex and considered a ‘black art’. This seminar will dispel this myth and provide a basic knowledge of spur and helical gear geometry and how gears work. The course includes how involute gears work; an introduction to the involute gear geometry standard ISO 21771; BGA Code of Practice 07 and gear terms and symbols; the basic rack; cutting tools and basic gear sums relating to spur and helical gears; gear pairs; centre distance; working pressure angles; tooth thickness and backlash and non-standard geometry; contact ratios and start of active profile calculations.
