# Hypoid gears require—even with low RPMs—a high-pressure oil

The offset is positive for cases 1 and 4; negative for cases 2 and 3 (Fig. 10). The spiral pinion angle positive in every negative columns on the left and right columns (gear spiral angle has the opposite sign). The sheer formulas are calculated based on the assumption that one pair transmits the torque of the teeth with one normal force vector in the pair side point average. The results are good approximations showing the loads is true for multiple tooth meshing within an acceptable tolerance. Precise calculation can be achieved with Gleason hypoid bevel gear and software. Introduction spiral as a result of contact angles face-ratio decreases after the tooth root thickness. The tooth thickness counting square in simplified root bending stress calculated using analogy beam deflection; ie.:

• reduces the thickness by: cos (angle spiral).

• face contact ratio increases simplified: tan (angle spiral).

Because of the location offset tooth mesh, must spiral pinion angle to include the above comments. Please note that the application of such formulas always show numerical advantage the spiral angle in root bending strength. Note, also, that crowning of hypoid gears truly always notice one pair of teeth transmission disproportionate share higher the load, and the one or two pairs of tooth also meant only share percentage little of the burden. Hypoid pinions is advantageous in that if the selected offset angle increases the spiral pinion. Together with the spiral angle, the pinion diameter increases. Figure 10 summarizes the 16 different hypoid case. It is on the left-hand column of the graphic for driving pinion, the right-hand column for driving gear. In the upper (# 2-Pinion Gear Drives) section that the pinion facing the ring gear; in the lower divisions, the pinion gear behind the ring. The transmission uses a torque in each case on the drive-side. Faxial vector points in the opposite direction for the coast-side torque transmission (the scheme will be expanded in Figure 10 to 32 cases in total). Cases 1 and 4 (and sub-cases E, H and HR) in Fig 10 cases with positive hypoid offset pinion increase the diam- eter that: d0 = d0 hypoid spiral • (1 / cosbpinion – 1 / cosbgear) is finite element calculations can be particularly useful in connection with hypoid equipment to get the best angle possible spiral for maximum root strength.

A tie-even hypoid gear oil with low RPMs high-pressure additives or synthetic hypoid special oils. Sump lubrication is recommended. Is to cover the width of the teeth next lowest level in the sump oil. Causes excessive oil foaming, cavitations and unnecessary energy losses. The best operating direction of the drive hypoid gears-side, where the appliance side convex and concave pinion mesh side. Note well that this is simply not recommended-it’s a binding rule. In the drive direction (Fig. 9) of forces between the two members of the pinion coupling bend sideways and axially away from the appliance to generate the biggest backlash. Coast-side operation reduces the backlash-in extreme cases-to zero, thereby compromising any side separated from a lubricant and surface damage immediately and frequently thereafter breaking tooth.
