While the basis of this edition was AGMA A01, the new revision includes significant technical changes.

A master gear is a gear of known accuracy, designed specifically to mesh with the gear to be inspected for composite variation. Eleven flank tolerance classes are defined, numbered 1 to 11, in order of increasing tolerance.

Already Subscribed to this document. Master gears shall conform to clause 7 tolerances, for accuracy grade 2, 3 or 4.

The manufacturing of gearing to a specified accuracy may or may not include specific measurements.

A filter that excludes short wavelength high frequency data is called a low-pass filter. The actual filter type and attenuation should be indicated on the data sheet. That figure shows the index data for a gear with 35 teeth, thus having a value of k equal to 4. Need more than one copy? Surface texture is not considered in this part of ISO Cylindrical gears – ISO system of flank tolerance classification Part 1: Typically, the factor for this adjustment is the cosine of the angle between the normal direction and the specified tolerancing direction.

Ten accuracy grades are provided in this standard, numbered A2 through A11 in order of decreasing precision. In this standard, lower AGMA accuracy grades designate higher precision in order to be consistent with international standards. It shall be calculated as follows: At any point on a gear tooth surface, the normal vector is oriented 1 tangent to the base cylinder of the gear, and 2 inclined relative to the transverse plane at the base helix angle. The committee agreed that a new gear classification system was needed: In either case, index values must first be found.


Therefore this parameter is only applicable to gears with 12 or more teeth. All manufacturing parameters must consider the need to produce the equivalent of accuracy grade A4 gears to meet the SPC requirements. Therefore, the users of this standard are cautioned against the direct application of tolerance values to a projected performance of unassembled loose gears when they are assembled.

Gear design is beyond the scope of this standard. It specifies definitions for gear flank tolerance terms, the structure of the flank tolerance class system, and allowable values. The tolerance grades for the new standard are designated A2-A The exclusion of certain portions of the test data frequency spectrum is called filtering. The scope of applicability has been expanded; Revisions have been made to the formulae which define the flank tolerances; Annexes have been added to describe additional methods for analysis of modified profiles and helices; The evaluation of runout, previously handled in ISOhas been brought back into this part of ISO It will minimize or exclude all irregularities with wavelengths shorter than the specified filter cutoff wavelength.

Tolerance formulas were based on the actual gear geometry rather than on geometric mean values. Usually, a specific master is required for each different production gear design. This test can include the effect of tooth element variations, such as a variation in helix.

AGMA technical publications are subject to constant improvement, revision, or withdrawal as dictated by experience. The inspection of gearing mated in an assembly for a specific application is beyond the scope of this standard.

The key to a proper fit for keyways.

The variability of the measuring process contributes to the variability of the manufacturing process. This standard aggma tolerances for unassembled gears. These tolerances are applicable to the following ranges: High frequency test data that is near but not exactly at the cutoff is 215-1-a01 proportionally according to its proximity to the cutoff wavelength.


If the measuring instrument reads in inches, values calculated from the equations in 7. See clauses 6 and 7. Thus, a condition wherein the distance between the two teeth comprising the sector pitch deviation was shorter than the theoretical distance would be considered a minus — deviation. Process control includes elements such as manufacturing planning, maintenance of machine tools, cutting tool selection and maintenance, heat treatment control, and accuracy assurance programs, as needed, to achieve and maintain the necessary gear accuracy.

A 5 Accuracy grade This integer ranging from 2 through 11 identifies the accuracy level of the tolerances. Electrical filtering is most commonly encountered on older instruments; newer instruments employ mathematical filtering.

2015-1-x01 Site Safety October 1, Columbia Gear Corporation W. It is possible that a specific gear can pass through the entire production process without ever having been measured. Specific requirements are to be stated in the contractual documents.

The datum axis determines tooth geometry, thereby being the reference for measurements and associated tolerances. An example of how to establish an AGMA classification number for a given set of conditions is presented in figure 5. Minus material outside the helix evaluation range may be amga.

A filter that excludes long wavelength low frequency data is called a high–pass filter. All data at frequencies significantly higher than the cutoff are eliminated. Future of gear design relies on overcoming present July 15,
