We have equipment to do FFT analysis of gear noise. Also inspection for
analysis of gear accuracy elements such as involute, lead, index, etc. We
have transmission error measuring instrumentation that can be used in the
field as well as in our laboratory, under simulated mounting conditions.
Very few pieces of this equipment are available in this country. It is especially
valuable for the solution of gear noise and accuracy problems as well as
imaging density variation problems in printing presses and office equipment.
We have presented several seminars for AGMA on the subjects of gear inspection,
gear noise, and transmission error testing. We can also arrange for private,
