About this book


This book presents the most up-to-date accomplishments in gear design and gear production, detailing theory of gearing and its application. As an enormous number of gears are used in such sectors as automobiles, aerospace, machines, and similar industries, even a very small improvement in the gear design or production, for example a 10 cent savings on each gear, can result in huge of savings in manufacturing, underscoring critical importance of the subject of the book. Giving a solid background in theory together with the latest advances in design and production, the book is ideal for product designers working in numerous industries. The volume also serves as a useful supplement to required texts well for students in mechanical and industrial engineering as it helps establish a scientific foundation to the subject, and facilitates a systematic learning process of gear kinematics, gear geometry, gear design, gear production/finishing operations, and related competencies.
