Separation of Sliding and Rolling Between Meshing Profiles


This paper describes a comprehensive study of the novel gear design with physical separation between sliding and rolling motions of the mesh gear contact point. The sliding motion is accommodated by shear deformation of a thin-layered rubber-metal laminate allowing very high compression loads. Several important advantages will be presented when comparing the composite gear design to the conventional involute profile.
