Inspection of the cutting blade is a crucial step in the manufacturing of bevel gears. The proper blade geometry ensures that the desired gear tooth form can be achieved. The accuracy of the process can be compromised when the blade consists of several small sections, or when dust particles, surface roughness, or floor vibration during the data acquisition occurs. This paper highlights a new method for improving the robustness of the inspection process in such cases. A proposal for using larger portions of the blades to evaluate the properties of the small features will be shown. The paper discusses the methods developed and provide several examples of gears made using these methods.
