Materials Matter: Roughness Measurement of Precision Gear Teeth

 Improved finish requirements to reduce surface distress failures have led to the need for accurate and standardized measurement of tooth flank roughness.

Over the past 25 years, industries such as power generation, aerospace, automotive, and others have continuously increased the operational demands of gearboxes. The precision gears used in these highly loaded, low-speed or high-speed gear applications are susceptible to surface distress failures. Consequently, tooth flank roughness…
