Advanced Gear Manufacturing and Finishing offers detailed coverage of advanced manufacturing technologies used in the production of gears, including new methods such as spark erosion machining, abrasive water jet machining, rapid prototyping, laser shaping, etc.
The industry in this area is constantly producing new settings where gears must endure ever increasing stresses, strains, and temperatures. New manufacturing methods, in both additive and material removal, have emerged in recent years to meet these challenges.
This unique book takes a critical look at the state-of-the-art research into these new methods, and the latest improvements to classic technologies in both gear manufacture and finishing. This book is essential reading for researchers and engineers working in the fields of powertrain manufacturing, gear technology, and advanced manufacturing technologies.
- Describes the machining systems, main components, and working procedures with the help of diagrams and photos
