Gear Measuring

According to requirements gears are checked in different ways.

Gears for minor requirements are checked by measuring the tooth width or the measurement over pins.

For checking precise gears like ground gears we make gear diagrams on our measuring machines.

When making diagrams we measure the profile (tooth flank from root to tip), the flank (tooth flank over the length) and the indexing.

In order to assure a correct measuring the measuring appliance is calibrated regularly in short intervals.

Apart from that we have a separate measuring machine from Leitz on which we can check and measure gears completey independent of the production process.
