  • Pressure angle
    The flanks of the reference profile, (DIN 867), include with the normal to the profile baseline the profile angle equal to the angle α. The reference profile of gear cutting tools is set according to DIN 3972.

  • Profile shift factors x 1 and x 2 are given
    The box for the axis distance leave blank; it is shown in the result.
    If profile shift factors x 1 and x 2 and axis distance are given, predetermined profile shift factors are negligible as a result. For the given axis distance program calculates x1 and x2 for lowest tooth root bending stress.

  • The profile shift coefficient x 1 or x 2 and the axis are entered
    the box other profile shift coefficient leave blank,
    it is shown in the result
    Note: The radially measured amount of displacement from the location affecting the reference circle, Profile shift called, is charged off positive shift from wheel centre and negatively charged to shift against the wheel centre (applies also with internal helical gear).

  • Enter axis distance
    Input fields of the profile shift factors leave blank, on the contrary the previous criterion is valid. For the given axis distance program calculates x1 and x2 for lowest tooth root bending stress.

procedure for a new pair of gears:

  • Enter the number of teeth, Helix angle, normal module
    Leave blank input fields of the profile shift factors and the center distance; so-called "zero wheels" with the "zero distance"
  • Submit input data
  • Examine the result:
    A reasonable distance would be of (zero centres) to (zero - distance + normal module)
  • enter in the draft approved center distance and "Submit input data"
  • In the new result is calculated x1 and x2 for lowest tooth root bending stress
    Sliding roll ratio VC/VR on the pinion tooth head shall be not greater than at the wheel tooth head; Sliding roll ratio VC/VR at the wheel tooth head shall not be greater than 3; (Sliding speed must be not greater than 3 times roll speed)!
    An adaptation is possible with the change of Center distance. For a stabilization of VC/VR sliding roll relation enter one using the "copy paste" of the corresponding profile addendum modification factors from the result as a new entry.
  • Input data submit and examine the result
