In gear manufacturing, precision gear grinding is a finishing process which uses abrasive wheels to remove small variations on gear teeth. It is widely known to be the most accurate way to finish a high precision gear, offering a more precise tooth finish than gear cutting.
Due to their precise gear geometry, precision ground gears offer excellent meshing effectiveness and a smooth operation, running more quietly and wearing more evenly than cut gears. They can also handle higher loads, and are useful when large amounts of torque are required. For these reasons, they are often found in equipment that demands high performance and reliability.
