A conventional face-gear drive is formed by an involute spur pinion and a conjugated face-gear (Fig. 18.1.1). Such a gear drive may be applied for transformation of rotation...

GEARS AND GEARING
External spur gears are cylindrical gears with straight teeth cut parallel to the axes. Gears transmit drive between parallel shafts. Tooth loads produce no axial thrust.
The involute gearing, first proposed by Euler, has found widespread application in the industry due to its many advantages: (i) the tools for generation of involute gears can be...
In principle, the design of internal gear teeth is the same as that for spur gears. Any of the basic rack forms used for spur gears may be applied to internal gears. The internal gear...
