Evaluation of Overall Efficiency of Devices with Worm Gear


Article Preview

Overall efficiency represents an important qualitative property for devices used in manufacturing technology. This paper presents the mathematical modeling of calculating worm gear overall efficiency. The studied worm gear types goes into numerous manufacturing devices component. Mathematical model validation was experimentally performed on a tool sharpening device with a helicoidally profile. The analytical calculated results were closed to experimentally determined results, which partially validates the model proposed in the paper.
