Unlike other gear manufacturers, SMS calculates and improves tooth and flank profiles individually. That ensures equal pressure distribution over the entire load flank. As a result, the maximum contact pressure is approximately 30% lower than that of standard teeth.
To realize equal distribution of contact pressure and avoid premature meshing, SMS designs the tooth and flank profiles in three steps:
What sets SMS advanced gear design apart is that it increases the torque capacity of new gearboxes as well as existing gearboxes. Several customers have already replaced their existing mill pinions with new gear sets based on the advanced gear design. That ensures the new systems transmit up to 30% higher torques with the same outer dimensions.
