Low-vibration gears

There is a tendency in cold mills for vibrations caused by higher strip speeds to leave periodic marks on the strip surface. Specially engineered to fix this problem, SMS group gears prevent these vibrations. Most significant here are the fine-tuned tooth face contact ratio and tooth transverse contact ratio as well as the gear mesh frequency.
