Grinding - An Answer for High Performance Low Noise Spiral and Hypoid Bevel Gears in Development, Production and Testing 2000-01-1286
Current and future motor vehicle development demands improvement in the areas of economy, environmental acceptability and noise reduction. The performance and manufacture of bevel and hypoid gear sets will also be subject to the same improvement requirements.
The above issues will be discussed from a viewpoint of an industrial mass production environment and highlight new developments in gear manufacturing with special emphasis on finish grinding of bevel gear sets. Additionally, new procedures and methods, permitting objective gear quality measurement and noise performance, as well as direct correlation to vehicle performance will be taken under consideration.
The integration of manufacturing and test procedures in a closed loop production process will show the best approach to fulfill future OEM demands.
