THE NEED OF GRINDING CARBURIZED AND HARDENED GEARS 240017

Graphical demonstration is given of the desirability of grinding gears that are made of carburized material. The warping of carburized gears is shown to be due to the shrinking of the carburized metal. The teeth cut on the regular commercial type of hobbing machine vary in form; those cut on a simplified hobbing machine are more accurate. Tooth forms made from oil-treated steel are much better than those made from carburized and hardened steel. The conclusion is that carburized gears must be ground, but when oil-treated and accurately cut on a simplified hobbing machine grinding may be necessary only when the teeth have become mutilated.
