Design and Development of Gear Measuring Machine by means of Introducing Special Attachment for Reducing Takt Time


Background/Objectives: Gear measurement is an important as well as critical step and it is done in bench centers by using instruments which have a gear with mandrel. However, this method is found to be time consuming. In addition it is very difficult to execute this process without additional man power. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In the existing method of measurement using bench centers includes a surface table which contains head, dead center. In this proposed measuring machine we introduced a digital dial indicator arrangement to measure whole depth of the gears. Findings: It reduces the measuring time as well as man power required. In this proposed research work, an attempt has been made to reduce the time taken in measuring the whole depth, face out and run out in gears from 10 minutes to 7 minutes that is 30% reduction. Application/Improvements: Thus proposed method would be well matches for modern gear manufacturing industries to obtain micron level measurement in terms of time as well as man power consumption.
