Course Description:

This course will provide theoretical and practical instruction in the grinding development of bevel gearing.  First and second order development changes and inspection procedures, terminology, machine descriptions and problem troubleshooting will all be covered in this program.

Depending on the needs of the student, this course may include scussions and lectures defining Waguri Grinding, its application, design parameters and manufacturing techniques. Hands-on experience is given in machine setup and operation as well as the techniques of developing acceptable tooth contacts of mating members. Mating pinions can be ground in fixed setting tilt or Duplex Helical method.
