Base Tangent Length Calculation for Helical Gears
Title: BASE TANGENT LENGTH CALCULATION FOR HELICAL GEAR.
Application of guideline Base tangent length required for gear tooth inspection
Introduction: Base tangent length (Wk) is generallly used to determine gear tooth thickness by measuring length across a certain no. of teeth (k) and unit correction factor.
To determine optimum no.of teeth there is two methods-
1. It can be determined by refering to graph in CMTI handbook pg 268 "Optimum number of teeth"
2. From following calculation method
NOTE : Compulsory follow both method for verification of optimum no. of teeth
