The gear machine element is a circle with teeth spaced evenly over its circumference. Two or more gears paired with each other form a gear drive. They constitute the largest group amongst the gearing mechanisms. They are form-fitting and thus do not slip. Just like with the gear housings, expanding dimensions mean that installed gears are increasing in size.
You need to have the right measuring technology to fulfill the design specifications for generating lower noise emissions and minimizing susceptibility to wear and tear. ZEISS GEAR PRO software assists in the quality assurance of gearing. The product family covers the most commonly used gear types: cylindrical gears, bevel gears, worms as well as screw compressors/rotors and gear hobbers used to manufacture gears.
