Meshing Theory of New Epicycloids Gear Drive
In order to realize the pure rolling, improve the contact ratio, remove the backlash and raise the life, a new epicycloids gear drive is put forward. The drive part of the particular mechanism is a wheel with the roller tooth and is called the roller gear. And the driven part is the epicycloids gear. The tooth profile equation is achieved and meshing characteristics is also studied. The basic parameters of the new mechanism are researched and the 3D model is achieved. The research result shows that the new drive is workable and the new mechanism has a wide application prospect.
