Gears are a key component of power transmission systems, with applications spanning the automotive, aerospace, medical and power generation sectors, among many others. Written for designers of gears who have no knowledge of gear measurements, gear manufacturers who would like to control the quality of their product and metrologists who would like to carry out measurements of gears, this guide provides readers with basic understanding and instruction on measuring the surface texture of gears using a stylus instrument. Readers will learn basic knowledge of gears and gear surface textures, as well as learn about gear surface measurements and uncertainty evaluation. The guide also covers good practice regarding the gear surface texture parameter calculations and uncertainty evaluation.
