Non-contact metrology allows for a very fast collection of points on the measured gear tooth surfaces, with data rates that can be as high as millions per second. It is a wealth of information about the gears. This paper discusses using this data for reverse engineering, noise root cause analysis, or as a baseline for stress information for further gear design optimization. Also presented is an approach on integration of non-contact metrology to enhance current methodology of analysis and simulation of gear drives.
