Abstract: A new measuring system to evaluate quickly the accuracy of transmission gears more correctly has been developed, in which the profile and lead measuring machine is connected on line with a personal-computer and the data are analysed automatically. This computer-aided system gives the value of tooth deterioration and the heat-treatment distortion tendency. Moreover, its error analysing system designates the tooth surface three-dimensionally and analyses the effect of the tooth accuracy on the noise caused by gear meshing.

Keywords: automotive applications; computer-aided inspection; CAI; computer-aided manufacturing; CAM; transmission gears; measuring systems; automobile industry; tooth deterioration; heat treatment distortion; tooth accuracy; gear noise; gear meshing.
