Lightweight gearwheel design using separate gear ring and wheel body - Part II: Different manufacturing concepts for replacing a full body gearwheel
This paper presents two wheel body concepts for multi-component gearwheels, consisting of a gear ring and the already mentioned wheel body. Two process chains for manufacturing two wheel bodies are introduced. Additionally, both wheel bodies are investigated numerically. The torque between shaft and gearwheel a multi-component gearwheel is able to transfer is chosen as command variable to be maximized. Finally, both wheel body concepts are compared to each other.
