The Gearing industry has changed drastically over the past 29 years since the publication of the first edition. Thus, this latest edition presents not only a thorough updating of all topics covered in the first edition, but also the inclusion of new chapters and topics to keep pace with rapidly-evolving technologies and methodologies.
In adddition to expert coverage of basic design considerations functional gear types and arrangements ,and special calculations for spur and helical gears, you’ll also find detailed analyses of machine tools, die forming of gears, choice of materials, and stress and efficiency calculations- the complete range of theory, design, production, inspection, and applications for nearly all types of gears currently used in industry.
Each chapter is written by world-renowned experts in their respective areas, supported by scores of clear illustrations, tables, graphs, and charts… and this practical, comprehensive resource will bring you right “up to speed” with NEW coverage of such vital topics as:
Gear vibration, including methods for vibrant measurements,limits for machinery, and practical solutions to vibrant problems
Efficient lubrication of gears at various load and speed conditions.A complete update of the load rating of gearing,using the latest data from national and international standards such as AGMA, DIN and ISO
Revised methods of gear finishing by grinding,shaving, honing ,and rolling, including a discussion of the new CBN grinding technology.
Latest techniques for quality control of gear tolerances, plus data on new gear inspection equipment.
