The AGMA Technical Division is proud to announce the publication of the new revision of ANSI/AGMA 6002-C15 “Design Guide for Vehicle Spur and Helical Gears” along with the publication of its metric equivalent, ANSI/AGMA 6102-C15 “Design Guide for Vehicle Spur and Helical Gears (Metric Edition).”
The new standards, ANSI/AGMA 6002-C15 and ANSI/AGMA 6102-C15, were developed within the AGMA Vehicle Gearing Committee by updating ANSI/AGMA ANSI/AGMA 6002-B93 and creating a metric equivalent.
This standard provides the engineer, who is familiar with gear designing, a guide to sound design approaches for vehicle gear applications.
Through this standard, the engineer is guided to selecting design considerations paramount to the parallel axis gear sets required in vehicle drive lines. These include tooth and blank proportions, metallurgy, lubrication, profile and lead modification requirements, and gear tooth tolerances. Properties of the commonly used steels and processes for their heat treatment are outlined, as well as details for calculating design limits for bending and contact stresses.
This new standard replaces ANSI/AGMA 6002-C15. Both ANSI/AGMA 6002-C15 and its metric equivalent, ANSI/AGMA 6102-C15, are available for purchase in electronic format on the AGMA website at http://www.agma.org; click on the “STANDARDS” button.
The AGMA Vehicle Gearing Committee wishes to thank all participants for their valuable contributions during the development of this new standard.
