Based on the comparison with the traditional normal non-circular gears, a new type of radial non-circular gears and its generation method are discussed, and the thought for tooth-by-tooth modification is introduced. In this paper, the whole process from the mathematical analysis to CAD/CAM Integration is discussed, which has an extensive application in the field of flow meters.
