2. Applications of Gears Toys and Small Mechanisms small, low load, low cost Appliance gears long life, low noise & cost, low tomoderate load Power transmission long life, high load and speed Aerospace gears light weight, moderate to high load Control gears long life, low noise, precision gears Mechanical Engineering Dept. 2 3. Mechanical Engineering Dept. 3 4. Types of GearsGear (large gear)Spur gears tooth profile is parallel tothe axis of rotation, transmits motionbetween parallel shafts. Internal gearsPinion (small gear)Helical gears teeth are inclined tothe axis of rotation, the angle providesmore gradual engagement of the teethduring meshing, transmits motionbetween parallel shafts. Mechanical Engineering Dept. 4 5. Types of GearsBevel gears teeth are formed on aStraightconical surface, used to transferbevel gearmotion between non-parallel andintersecting shafts. Spiral bevel gearMechanical Engineering Dept.5 6. Types of GearsWorm gear sets consists of ahelical gear and a power screw (worm),used to transfer motion between non-parallel and non-intersecting shafts.Rack and Pinion sets a specialPinioncase of spur gears with the gearhaving an infinitely large diameter,the teeth are laid flat.Rack Mechanical Engineering Dept.6 7.

Base CircleBacklash = (tooth spacing)driven gear (tooth thickness)driver , measured on the pitch circle. Mechanical Engineering Dept.8 9. Useful Relations P=N/dP = diametral pitch, teeth per inchN = number of teethd = pitch diameter (gear diameter)p (circular pitch) = d / N Pp = Metric systemm (module, mm) = d / NMechanical Engineering Dept. 9 10.
