Design Investigations and Indications for Acoustical Optimized Gear Meshes Using Plastic Gears - February 2019

M. Koop, E. Melnikov and V. Merz

The article "Design Investigations and Indications for Acoustical Optimized Gear Meshes Using Plastic Gears" appeared in the February 2019 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
When it comes to a steel-gear mesh, there are several common standards and design rules on how to reduce noise emissions in the mesh. But if plastic gears are involved, this is no longer the case. The topic of this presentation is to highlight some of the differences between metal-and-plastic gear meshes, i.e. which design strategies can be stated as valid for metal as well as plastic and which are not?
