A B B Y Y.c A B B Y Y.c INPUT 2.0 INTRODUCTION Gears are used to transmit power positively from one shaft to another by means of successively engaging teeth (in two gears). They are used in place of belt drives and other forms of friction drive when exact speed ratios and power transmission must be maintained. Gears may also be used to increase or decrease the speed of the driven shaft, thus decreasing or increasing the torque of the driven number. 2.1. TYPES OF GEARS 2.1.1. Spur gear Spur gears, Fig. 2.1, are generally used to transmit power between two parallel shafts. The teeth on these gears are straight and parallel to the shafts to which they are attached. When two gears of different sizes are in mesh, the larger is called the gear while the smaller is called the pinion. Spur gears are used where slow to moderate- speed drive are required.

Pinion Figure 2.1. Spur gears Figure 2.2. Internal gears 2.1.2. Internal gears Internal gears, Fig. 2.2., are used where the shafts are parallel and the centers must be closer together and that could be achieved with spur or helical gearing. This arrangement, provides a stronger drive since there is the greater area of contact than with the conventional gear drive. It also provides speed reductions with a minimum space requirement. Internal gears are used on heavy duty tractors where much torque is required. 2.1.3. Helical gears Helical gears, Fig.2.3, may be used to connect parallel shafts or shafts which are at an angle. Because of the progressive rather than intermittent action of the teeth, helical gears run more smoothly and quietly than spur gears. Since there is more than one tooth in engagement at any one time, helical gears are stronger than spur gears of the same size and pitch. However, special bearing (thrust bearings) are often required on shafts to overcome the end thrust produced by these gears as they turn. View slide

Helical gears Figure 2.4. Herringbone gears 2.1.4. Herringbone gears Herringbone gears, Fig. 2.4., are resembles of two helical gears placed side by side, with one half having a left-hand helix and the other half a right-hand helix. These gears have a smooth continuous action and eliminate the need for thrust bearings. 2.1.5. Bevel gears When two shafts are located at an angle with their axial lines intersecting at 90o, power is generally transmitted by means of bevel gears, Fig. 2.5. Figure 2.5. Bevel gears View slide

Miter gears When the shafts are at right angles and the gears are of the same size, they are called miter gears, Fig. 2.6.. Figure 2.6. Miter gears Figure 2.7. Angular bevel gears 2.1.7. Angular bevel gears However, it is not necessary that the shafts be only at right angles in order to transmit power. If the axes of the shafts intersect at any angle other 90o, the gears are known as angular bevel gears, Fig. 2.7. 2.1.8. Hypoid gears Bevel gears have straight teeth very similar to spur gears. Modified bevel gears having helical teeth are known as hypoid gears. The shafts of these gears, although at right angles, are not in the same plane and, therefore, do not intersect. Hypoid gears are used in automobile drives, Fig. 2.8.

Worm and worm gear When shafts are at right angles and considerable reduction in speed is required, a worm and worm gear may be used, Fig. 2.9. The worm, which meshes with the worm gear, may be single or multiple start thread. A worm with a double-start thread will revolve the worm gear twice as fast as a worm with a single-start thread and the same pitch. 2.1.10. Rack and pinion When it is necessary to convert rotary motion to linear motion, a rack and pinion may be used, Fig. 2.10. The rack, which is actually a straight or flat gear, may have straight teeth to mesh with a spur gear, or angular teeth to mesh with a helical gear. Pinion Rack Figure 2.10. Rack and pinion

PLUG METHOD OF CHECKING FOR PITCH DIAMETER AND DIVIDE OF TEETH The tooth vernier gives us a check on the size of the individual tooth, but does not give a measure of either the pitch diameter or the accuracy of the division of the teeth. Figure 2.13 Fig. 2.13 shows a rack tooth symmetrically in mesh with a gear tooth space, the curved sides of the gear teeth touching the straight rack tooth at the points A and B on the lines of action. O is the pitch. If now we consider the rack

A B B Y Y.c A B B Y Y.c tooth as an empty space bounded by its outline, a circle with centre at O and radius OB would fit in the rack tooth and touch it at A and B (since OA and OB are perpendicular to the side of the rack tooth). Since the rack touches the gear at these points, the above circle (shown dotted) will rest against the gear teeth at points A and B and will have its centre on the pitch circle. In triangle OBD: OB = radius of plug required. 1 OD = circular pitch 4 pm = 4 < B = 90o, <O=y OB = OD cos y pm = cos y 4 Dia of plug = 2OD pm = cos y 2 This is the diameter of a plug which will rest in the tooth space and have its centre on the pitch circle. Notice that the plug size remains the same for all gears having the same pitch and pressure angle. With such plugs placed in diametrically opposite tooth spaces, it is a simple matter to verify the gear pitch diameter. The accuracy of the spacing over any number of teeth may be found as shown in chordal calculations. Example: Calculate for a 36Tgear of 5 mm module and 20o pressure angle, (a) plug size (b) distance over two plugs placed in opposite spaces, (c) distance over two plugs spaced 10 teeth apart.
