 Measurement Functions

HyGEARS provides tools to assess and improve gear manufacturing quality. Measurement can be done on different CMMs and CMM results are used in several applications, as outlined below.

 
 Measured Surfaces
 
displays the simulated teeth and measurement data 
 
 
 Compare Surfaces
 
displays the differences between the measured and simulated tooth surfaces
 Stock Distribution
 
displays the differences between the Roughing and Finishing tooth thickness
distribution; offers tools to improve the Stock distribution
 Corrective Machine Settings
 (Closed Loop)
 
displays the differences between the measured and simulated tooth surfaces;
provides tools to calculate changes to machine settings needed to bring the
machined tooth surface coincident with the simulated surface, thereby correcting
the displayed surface errors; for spiral bevel and hypoid gears only
 Reverse Engineering
 
displays the calculated differences between the measured and simulated tooth
surfaces; provides tools to match the simulated tooth surface to the machined
tooth surface, thereby “reverse-engineering” the actual tooth surface;
for spiral-bevel and hypoid gears only
 CMM Nominal Data
 displays the simulated tooth surface, and offers tools to locate and calculate a
CMM target surface; for Gleason-Zeiss, MdM, Hoeffler, Klingelnberg-P,
CDS or any user defined format
 Diameter over Balls
 
 calculates and displays the distance between 2 spheres contacting the tooth
spaces on opposite sides of the workpiece; the spheres can be moved axially
(on bevel gears), and the diameter of the spheres can be changed
