What are the structural classifications of gears?
Generally, there are gear teeth, alveolus, end face, normal face, top circle, root circle, base circle and indexing circle.
Abbreviated as teeth, each of the protruding parts used for meshing on the gears, these protruding parts are generally arranged in a radial manner, and the teeth on the matched gears contact each other, so that the gears can continue to mesh and run.
It is the space between two adjacent teeth on the gear; the end face is the plane perpendicular to the axis of the gear or worm on the cylindrical gear or worm.
It’s the plane at both ends of the gear.
It refers to the plane perpendicular to the tooth line of the gear teeth.
It refers to the circle at the top of the tooth.
It refers to the circle at the bottom of the groove.
The generating line of the involute is formed as a circle of pure rolling.
It is a reference circle for calculating the geometric dimensions of gears in the end face.
