This paper discusses an experimental investigation on spur gears to characterize the pitting degradation process using monitoring features. Previous investigations have revealed that pitting has an impact on the gear vibration behavior. But is it possible to detect pitting at an early stage using acceleration sensors and acoustic emissions (AE) sensors to avoid consequential damages and subsequent correction activities? The paper will discuss this experimental investigation on spur gears to characterize the pitting degradation process using monitoring features. Also included is a discussion of the results of the investigation, including how the results show that a detection of pitting is possible several hours before complete gear failure, and more.
