Generating gear grinding of asymmetrical designs

Transmission developments now aim at increasing power density, reducing gear noise and improving energy efficiency levels. The increase in power density translates into a boost of the power transfer while maintaining or even decreasing the available installation space.

Asymmetrical designs enable greater load capacity on the flank and root, while maintaining high volume and low costs

In the real world, gear teeth are rarely subjected to equal loads on both the drive and the coast flanks. If one of the tooth flanks is subjected to higher force in the direction of the applied torque, the tooth meshing can be optimized using an asymmetrical tooth flank geometry.
