AGMA Releases New Standard on Inspection and Tolerances - 2002-C16

      The AGMA Technical Division is proud to announce the publication of the new revision of ANSI/AGMA 2002-C16, Tooth Thickness and Backlash Measurement of Cylindrical Involute Gearing.

      The new standard, ANSI/AGMA 2002-C16, was developed within the AGMA Gear Accuracy Committee by updating ANSI/AGMA 2002-B88.

      This standard establishes the procedures for determining the specification limits for tooth thickness of external and internal cylindrical involute gearing. It includes equations and calculation procedures for the commonly used measuring methods. A specific tooth thickness specification limit can be established from the design thickness or from another tooth thickness measurement. The procedures can be used with an established design tooth thickness, or with actual tooth thickness dimensions. The effect of tooth geometric quality variations on tooth thickness dimensions is discussed. Calculations for backlash are included, and are based on the specified tooth thickness, center distance, and tolerances.

      This new standard replaces ANSI/AGMA 2002-B88.
