AGMA is particularly pleased to have the opportunity to write the first editorial for this magazine.

Search by Author here. Trying to compare various methods of rating gears is like hitting a moving target in a thick forest.

However, data provided by the relevant technical literature, and the results of research, reveal that there is a direct correlation between the minimum lubrication gap-to-surface roughness ratio and the occurrence of micropitting frosting.

This could change come the census, but there’s no denying Buckeye Nation is going places. The use of different symbols, presentations, terminology, and definitions in these standards makes it very difficult. This went atma unnoticed in the U. Between committee meetings, networking opportunities and social events, many individuals in the gear industry were presented awards. No attempt is made to qualify or judge the standards other agmx to comment on the facilities or lack of them in each standard reviewed.

Ama The 25th anniversary is the silver. In Part I a comparison of pitting resistance ratings is made, and in the subsequent issue, Part II will deal with bending stress ratings and comparisons of designs. The probability of wear calculated by the standard is greater than the values that occur in practice.


It also sets the tone for confronting major challenges now looming large in our industry. This has been achieved through progressive changes in gear technology, gear design methods and the continual development and refinement of gearbox standards.

In practice, calculating wear in accordance with Wellauer results in risk of wear values that are too high. They do not represent the opinions of any organization of which he is a member. Firstly, the way to calculate the tooth thickness tolerance seems to need a “manufacturing profile shift coefficient” that isn’t specified in the standard; neither is another standard referred to for this coefficient.

Moore of Burgess-Norton Mfg. Of course gears – and their mechanical assemblies – are special items, widely present ag,a industrial applications where energy conversion and power transmission are involved. This should be considered a work in progress as more is learned about the theories and understanding of the various parameters and how they affect the life of the gear.

Gear Expo provides you with the greatest collection of gear expertise, know-how and experience you can find. Accumulation of feedback data will serve to enhance future developments and improved methods to evaluate lubricant related surface distress. But there is a connection of sorts. The semi-width of the Hertzian contact band was calculated based on the normal relative radius of curvature; Derating factors for application, misalignment and dynamics were explicit input data; Options for coefficient of friction were part of input data, including a constant 0.

Manufacturers and end-users are encouraged, however, to work with their lubricant suppliers to address specific concerns sgma special issues that may not be covered here such as greases. This information sheet provides sufficient information ahma the key lubricant parameters to agam the user to generate reasonable estimates about scuffing and wear based on the collective knowledge of theory available for these modes at this agmma.


In particular, there is no reference to a scuffing load capacity specification as given in the FZG test. Quantity must be a positive whole number. That statement will cause no one any surprise.

AGMA As specified in AGMAyou can use this input window to define the probability of scuffing and wear as well as susceptibility to micropitting frosting.

Kelley recognized the importance of load sharing by multiple pairs of teeth and gear tooth tip relief, but he did not offer equations to account for those variables. This paper explains how this algorithm can be applied for gear rating procedures.

After all, all illustrated bimonthly by the covers of this very journal the making of gears has been with us for centuries. Accumulation of feedback data will serve to enhance future developments and improved methods to evaluate lubricant related wear risks.

Any comments would be appreciated. What is a reasonable approach? The Blok flash temperature theory began to receive serious consideration as a predictor of scuffing in gears. The standard does not give any indications about safety against micropitting frosting.
